Violent Colors

Oil on jeans pieces collage. 38x76

This painting is a "remix" of an old one.

It was originally done when I was still working on the "destroyed" series. Even if I succeeded in picturing tension and pain through faces expressions, somehow I was globally unsatisfied with it. I felt it was not working from a formal point of view. The painting stayed in my studio for nearly a year.

Now that I am experimenting colors, symbols and nature elements, I decided to turn what was originaly pain and suffering into fun and joy.

Original subject mixed with flashy colors and playful shapes turns out now to give an ambivalent undefined feeling, where one is not sure wether the characters (especially the one opening is mouth) are enjoying a kind violence or just having strong sensations.
