Photo Description:
Acrylic on canvas In the exhibition called, "Ingres to Kandinsky" I was inspired by Juan Gris Cubist Still Life. Although this artwork is not in a genuine cubism, I apply its separated feature in this artwork. There is a marionette in the center of the artwork, and if one sees the artwork closely, one can identify four wooden controllers in each side of marionette. These four controllers give the sense of restriction and cubist style gives a sense of separation, indicating the collapse of one's identity and suffering. The contrast between a clear line painting and the swirling brushstroke on the side is intended to stress internal turbulence with the external appearance. Thus, by describing restriction and marionette, I convey inescapable nature of social pressure in this artwork.
