Life 2 (2015)
Acrylic on canvas – 91X76cm
This artwork is an abstract painting representing Life and its beauty in the first stages. The baby is floating in this safe warm environment reminding us that we are all born equal and highlighting the first Article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood”. The use of a monochromatic color scheme by the artist enhances the contrasts and creates a focus on the subject, helping creating a strong sense of visual cohesion. The softness of the face contrasts with the large strong brushstrokes in the background making the viewer aware of the fragility of humans and their strength and ability to adjust to every hard situation they face in live if they are accepted and appreciated.
