This painting "Dilemma" is with Acrylic paint on Burlap Canvas of 24"x18". The rough and rugged texture of burlap canvas, with the collage effect painting, the overlapping circles entangled in the multicolour web presents the dilemma we often face in life. This painting is a part of the series "The Circle of Life" that I have been working on, inspired by circles and abstract geometric shapes and forms. It is fully hand painted and no paper has been pasted for the "collage look". The painting has been done with acrylic paint to give "collage effect".
I draw and paint intuitively and spontaneously, trying to move from chaos and void to order, balance and rhythm. I go with the flow. I believe in the power of colours to help evoke a positive or negative response. This painting is in bright and vibrant colours, bringing warmth to the surrounding space. The bright primary and secondary colors make the painting vibrant while the circular shapes and spherical forms take it towards calmness, concerntation, and effort to be centered towards the core of our being. To me, art is an expression of the self, and through shapes and colours I express whatever is going on within, though the underlying meaning of art also depends on the viewer, the audience and the interpreter. I believe that knowingly or unknowingly, art influences not only the creator of the work of art, but also the viewer.
The sides of the original gallery wrapped watercolor canvas are painted as a continuation from the front of the painting. This painting can be hung vertically (portrait format) as well as horizontally (landscape format).The painting is sealed with clear sealer.
