“The thought of Lady M.”

“The Thought of Lady M.” was realised in February 2012. I used a mixed technique, combining washable pastels, acrylics, oil colours, paper, wool, thread, all on a 80 x 60 cm canvas. It is available for sale at the price of 230 EUR(shipping not included.)

A nocturnal atmosphere, in which each forehead hides a consciousness that cuts and cuts and cuts, like a guillotine blade. Everything exhales complicity and exhaustion. Each character stays silent and keeps hidden under its tongue, a black and wild thought, like a young mouse, a “corpse” who refuses to become word. Therefore, we are, somehow, in a dostoievskian situation, because each person buries behind its mimic a fault which does not fit elsewhere than in unspoken thoughts …
There is one character in the painting who knows that any guilty man plays with the snakes, with some snakes that only he can see. Guess who is it?
