When Art Cuts Right Into The Expression Of The Context Of Current Affairs

By Merkury Rising

Humanity is a very special case, the onlookers of the world would agree. Over the years we have witnessed world catastrophes that have taken the lives of many people.

Humanity is at its most vulnerable platform as danger flares up globally we are left with no clue as to what will happen next.

Fear never departs us, be it in Africa, or Europe it’s not safe.

Using art as a means of communication the painting on this page puts into context the depiction of a a toddler setting inflated balloons portraying different worlds into the atmosphere.

 

 

This is sign and a sense of freedom. The artwork indicates the freedom freely granted to human beings, that the right to have life and freedom without fear is a fundamental right.

It is at this point that the world has to come together and settle their differences, and have conversations about positive ambitions. This pushes us further, into the artwork.

As we look at it further, we see the toddler (young earth)overlooking a city in distant. The city is at peace. No calamity nothing but calmness. A desire for everyone to be free.

War can’t be the last resort as we are seeing in Ukraine. Surely not. It is a sign of failure.

A critical mistake which cannot be applied anywhere, poor civilians suffer the most, there is no choice.

But to succumb to war – balloons of peace are souls into the atmosphere of our dreams, our hope, our dignity light and hope.

The outbreak of Ukraine/Russian war has caught many by surprise, we never thought that we would see such calamity in our lifetime.

A war of that nature in our time is not meant to be a walk in the park. So what is the old generation teaching us?

 

 

Survivors of second world war, senior world citizens are watching in horror and saying could they be carrying unfinished grudges? We don’t know for sure.

But using artwork as a means of communication, everything is portrayed in summary, the world watches not in delight but in fear.

Given that this world is not an orphan, inspired by world events which again lean on the negative side of the story, in our society an orphan is someone who has no guardians.

It is one who lacks protection from all forms of agonies around him or her.

So take a look at the world as big as it is, the abuses it goes through, on daily basis, from deforestation – to global warming, wars, all these inspired the artwork in context.

There is no amount of humanity can claim that they own the voice of the art.

Or conquer it. For it to exist it means there’s some responsibility which took place somewhere by someone, the idea of owning it therefore must be denounced, the painting shows a toddler raising the world but with some voidness of love in it.

Love is contributed not sponsored. One can’t buy or sell love. It is a free contribution. What we must just do it to play our part.

This world is not an orphan that it may be abused, therefore it has to be reserved for the coming generations.
