Wrecked

wrecked. Drawn by me.

Reference is oil painting by great Théodore Géricault.A depiction of a shipwreck man…( http://www.conceptualfinearts.com/cfa/2014/10/15/frieze-master-2014-a-step-forward-into-quality/dsc_6959/ ) You can feel the suffering,misery,desolation,hopelessness in his extraordinarily expressive painting,not only this one of course ,in all of them,different characters manages to haunt the viewers in very different ways…
So in this terrible world we are living in,almost everyday migrants die in Mediterranean.Mainstream media degrades them to numbers, drowning is almost normalized.Some consider this is not even newsworthy. Announcers don’t even deign to think that they were just like everyone,had hopes,dreams,they loved someone…besides this, why were they escaping,why were/are they risking their lives?Who are directly or indirectly responsible for this tragedy?Indeed,who aren’t…What the imperialism,cooperations oil contracts have done to their home…Actually it’s wrong to use pronoun ‘them’,they are us indeed.I’m not any different from them.Will ever humanity take precedence over politics?I don’t know…For now I see no civilisation,and humanity is “wrecked”..And my words are only words,do not contribute to anything.I hate the way the world ignore and exploit lives and then distractes themselves with pretty things 😦

Another one is that I met a famous and successful sculptor who is master at his art,two months ago…We had a conversation about art in his atelier…He is such a modest person which makes me admire him more and more.Sparsely furnished interior of which every corner is full of sculptures and paintings in various sizes had timeless and unmatched beauty where joy and sadness brew…It was spectacular.His words for me and to my drawings (he uses the french word”dessin”)were all priceless… 🙂
