Reflection : optical illusion
This project expresses many different meanings of skull. Normally, everyone is so afraid of the skull image that they forget that the skull is a part of our body too, and without it, we cannot survive. No matter how beautiful your nose and eyes may be, all our skulls are the same, and we cannot live without it.It can be interpreted that people are actually afriad of themselves.
Looking at its outside appearance, the skull looks scary and can signify death. However, skull cannot hurt anyone as opposed to people who can hold grudge and kill their enemies.Looking at my painting ,you can see the use of two symbols in this set.
First, you will see the skull itself. I think skull is the gift that the God gave to us as it has a beautiful shape and texture.
Secondly, you can also see the flower. The flower’s name is Rafflesia which is the biggest flower in the world that has strange shape and beauty ,but it is also the killer of insects.
This painting can show two point-of-views of our society . On the outside it may look beautiful, nice and happy, but there are also competitions and sedition, which may not be as friendly or beautiful as we imagined.
In this exhibition, you can feel many emotions that I put in my work because paintings are, in a way, my diary. It may not tell you details about my real life, but you can see what kind of feelings I went through when I created each work.
Art is not something you have to understand, but it is something you can feel.
