FLIES ON THE WALL
We are witnessing an era where the common man’s reality has been thrown into the shock of raw human cruelty; images of broken bones, beheaded bodies and pit of corpses are hunting the media and the minds, like depictions of hell taken from the age of cannibalism.
No individual can keep his human identities intact in front of such carnal appetite for slaughter; no creature can stay fully untouched when facing such dreadful visuals spread through the web and unto our various screens.
In front of our eyes, victims are turned into mere numbers, falling in the thousands, losing their individuality, their breath, their human factors… they mutate into this hybrid breed of structural abnormalities; in our eyes, they transmute into mere bugs, crushed insects, dropping like flies while we are simply watching through a framed shiny 2D screen.
The work is composed of 25 paintings.
Each piece is 17.7x25.5cm, mixed media (Indian ink, acrylic, coffee, pochoires, and aquarelle) on acid free canvas textured paper and 32x42cm once framed.
