oil painting Description

The background is primarily blue with black and miniscule brush strokes of orange and yellow. Commonly perceived as happy or hopeful colors, within the context of "Abandoned", they assume a menacing tone. We could have red as a sign of hit or communicability and blue, on the other hand, as a chilling and rather venomous symbol.

The composition of visual elements within the oil painting is strong. The viewer can identify with the background a loud echo of abandonment, lament and fear which many have confronted, with all but a handful, being affected by it. The lighter colors, albeit hardly present, are the glimmer of our diminishing hope but not hopelessness. In the midst of a darkness which is squashing our very souls, we are hopping, however little, for the orange and the yellow to break out from their confined space and overwhelm the darkness.

While the centerpiece is colorful and bright, it is grotesque, having been transformed from human to a creature by the surrounding misery, and above all, its abandonment.

Should one look at the canvas top circular figure, one sees that it is heavily black but, possibly, the light blue which takes up less than a quarter of the head, represents hope or the futility of hope. The dominating color is red and there are two protrusions coming out of the head. They can be seen as the nose and the mouth or as a beak. In either case, they are disturbing and grotesque.

In keeping with the interpretation of the abstract painting background, one may visualize the multicolored central figure as bloodied and internally in a state of turmoil and anguish. The figure’s very soul seems to be crushed and the inner being misplaced.
