TWO OPPOSING FORCES, TWO OPPOSING COLORS IN ONE BODY: PASSION VS PRESSURE. "Two opposing forces, two opposing colors: passion and pressure. There is so much dichotomy and division among people that we often do not understand what forces inside us are fighting against each other, what they want from us. In this painting, I have tried to discover the connection between these two phenomena and show you how they would be expressed in one body.
And, needless to say, to know what would be the final result of the struggle, perhaps a merger?" Eva | Painter
Passion vs. Pressure - this is how our fascinating, figurative oil painting is called, consisting of two natures.
Right in the middle, we see a green figure with white hair who has no sharp features. The cold green color here is a symbol of pressure and alarm. It envelops the figure with heaviness, seriousness as if it is a burden for him, from which it cannot get rid. Then we see that a few pink hands try to cover the hero all over his body, touching and covering his face.
Pink as a symbol of passion and energy is the opposite force here. We notice the endless struggle of the two against each other, with neither of them winning. This modern hand-painted portrait will be appreciated by people who like to look at the art and fall into the unknown stream of thoughts, never getting tired of the surprises of art.
