Oil on Canvas
This is my latest painting, that i've been working on since October. My approach and interest in its execution was divisional, instead of cohesiveness. So its a sum of parts brought together on a single canvas. The uniting theme nonetheless is revolution. A revolution not pertaining to a specific time period or historical event, but humanity at large. This might at first seem false with my insertion of a Swastika; but the history of swastika goes back thousands of years, and though it's currently thought of as evil, the Swastika was always a sign of peace. Hence the brokenness appearance of it here. Also, the familiarity of it is an easy entrance into the painting. I've also used a lot of black on black, so though not translated and seen in the captured jpeg image, there are elements you can see more clearly, in person. For example the three white figures on top house three additional figures. Even in person not everything appears at once, but angle and light direction can effect what you observe, or don't. It is a painting you need to experienced in person, individually—not through reproductions—and from different aspects.
