Painting: Oil on Canvas.
"Hamlet's Cry: "Oh the Oedipus Thrust," painting takes fruition in the remembrance of the Oedipus story in Greek Mythology, and the Shakespearian play, Hamlet. My painting works towards depicting the desires of Hamlet towards his mother, Gertrude. The nude female at the bottom of the painting represents Hamlet's desire; the mother image to the right represents his delay. Hamlet is green with the envy of an Oedipus complex.
Do you not come to tardy son to chide,
That lapsed in time and passion lets go by
Th’important acting of your dread command?
O, say! (3.4.107-110)
My painting style is hovering between abstraction and figuration: I’ve always wanted my paintings to communicate the lust of skin, the connection we form towards each other, the long nature of frenzied heat.
