“OURS IS FURY“ Original Artwork, 2019
Created this piece for the #mrsuicidesheep #artchallenge for the #portrait category by @mrsuicidesheep . Of course I don't believe in winning anything as always, but I was able to have an idea for the #thepathlesstraveled theme so hey why not. It was also nice to revisit my old trope of girls with pretty faces. This time with a little bit more storytelling.
The meaning behind this painting that no one cares about:
For me the path less travelled is the one of fury, fire and anger. For many anger is stigmatized with negativity. It is about loss of controle and shameful rage. In school I have been told countless times to learn to “controle myself“. But to me anger is something I cherish. It helped me see more in life when times were darkest and made me want to pull through for myself and my own worth. Anger fuels the thing I think is the best part within me: Pure Passion. And I realised that the very earth beneath my feet is fired with fury. Tectonic plates clashing, volcanoes with intense heat, waves crashing against cliffs carving at the stone for centuries, shaping our landscapes. In nature resides fury, from fury lives passion and from passion grows life. Nature is furious with me. And there does not have to be shame in anger. Because when i'm angry it's because I care.
