Art Description

Painting: Oil, Charcoal, Marker on Canvas.

Mixed media on canvas 3D 80x80 cm (2015).

This work mixes many mediums as well as the figurative with the abstract. The two portraits were drawn with charcoal. I like to use this medium to give a sketch effect on my portraits. As models I chose my son and husband, firstly to symbolize humankind and virility but also to symbolize the passage of time from youth to adult. This painting talks about our primal animal instinct. The stag in the middle can be seen as the king of the forest. The animal is surrounded by graphic organic lines, suggesting nature. The background is in pastel colors, pink and blue representing the feminine and masculine energies in mankind. The instinctive interlacing graffiti, symbolizing the concrete jungle, shows man's own territory being invaded by the organic lines. Nature takes over again. The metaphor of this creation is that even in the heart of the city and modernity, man reacts according to his own self-preservation, like an animal, he is called back by his wild side.
