The concept is inspired by Picasso's painting featuring a blue nude model.I was toying with the idea of painting a monotone piece and it was the eve of the 2019 new year that I suddenly got emotional and reflected on various issues of the world.Hence I wrote this poem and painted this artwork, continuing my obsession with the Eye subject.
I have written an accompanying poem to the artwork as part of the exhibition:
Fireworks dancing in the skies
holding my palette knives
Heralding a brandnew year
Drowned in cheers of wonder
At the beautiful colours they
But am I seeing a different reality?
Across time and spaces in the
People strive to attain worldly goals
In ways so violent and unimaginable
Immersed in one’s subconscious battle.
I lament and let things go by
Although I see unending strife.
To help restore the world’s new order
Suffice that I just sit and say a prayer?
Coming from a background of filming, I had wanted to frame the eye in such a way that dramatizes the intensity of the emotion, juxtaposed by a rather sedate lady(representing me) in a dilemma with her mixed feelings of courage and helplessness. I asked myself, what can a small dot of a human like me do for some of the world's disorders?
