Tell us about your piece: What struggle is being depicted, and why did you choose to illustrate this struggle?
- The struggles depicted in my painting dress four symbolic persons.
On the left the chained self –humiliated but not broken- seeks redemption from the savage grasp of those which rule the Earth “with art”: Deception, Tyranny and Greed.
On the right, the feminine shape of my self, emburdened with excessive sensitivity, falls with broken wings of shattered dreams and pure feelings raped with grace.
Down low is the exhausted self, released of any hope or will to fight, waiting to fade and forget all disillusions, illness or his too tight skin of a man, for the longing to express beyond.
On the center, the luminous creative self is coming to redeem from the touch of Death, sealing with the Tools of Creativity the power to disolve life and meanings into dumb, black unawareness.
He stands raging against dispair, slavery and darkness, trying to bring redemption to all shattered selves through artful passions, fighting depression with catharsis, dispair with love for meaningful beauty, unfairs of life with deep understanding … defying Death with a smile, while hitting to shatter the bonderies of time.
How long did it take you to create your piece?
- I found out quite lately about the contest, so I had at my disposal only the last 5 or 6 remaining days untill the deadline. So I put aside other projects and use “day and night.”
How did you create your artwork?
- It was therapy in awe to work on this illustration. How could it be else when alluring the night of the soul out to visual; when grabbing chaotic fragments of hidden garbage, and squeeze them of shapes and colors to meaningful, harmonious organization. I use to keep open the whole process when creating anything, and let the creativity anytime “combine the dots” unexpectedly, stirring my passion all the way. I dodge as I can the mere renderer state.
What was the thought process behind your artwork's creative concept?
- I tried to conceive a four acts panorama of struggles that are not haunting only my self, but in different shapes with the same overwhelming, are burdens of many: the fights for deep significance, the defeats and victories that shape the meaningful hero inside, in the struggle to confront the decay and gain everlastingness. I was thrilled beyond words with the Ernest Becker’s << Denial of Death>> which I humbly consider a “sine qua non” treasure in the mind library, a pillar of understanding life from a human skin, an illumination of the self in the quest for redemption, and a diamond foundation of a bettter world. A world that would wage its “holy wars of significance” not between people, but against problems that prevents them to enjoy or evolve, like scarcity, poverty, diseases, ignorance or death.

Come, dear guests, arround this silver plate before your eyes… and feast upon my shattered self.
Please, taste on left… delicious piece cooked in despair, up and down boiled in the chains of those which rule the life on Earth with art: Deception, Tyranny and Greed. Maybe too stubborn piece to be soft-delicious, because of some defiance ruins, but there are three more.
So, don’t be shy, and try the right… It’s only milk and honey of broken dreams and pure feelings, raped with grace. The spice of dissappointment blows bubbles over memories of human changing nature, softening in juice of depression this delicate, feminine shape of my self.
Don’t miss the down low part… Why be deceived of corpse like smelling? The flesh is only released of any hope or will to fight, waiting with stonestill inner remainings, for the grey stardust grinder. Waiting to fade and forget all disillusions… and his too tight skin of a man, for his fire to express.
And now, exotic flavor, up above… It’s really rare. The creative self, trying to bring redemption to all shattered selves through artful passions, fighting depression with catharsis, dispair with love for meaningful beauty, unfairs of life with deep understanding … defying Death with a smile, while hitting to shatter the bonderies of time.
... she softly whispers with unearthly echoes:
<< "Here I am, the offspring of restless dreams, harmony of the thirst for beauty, kindness, everlastingness… The living mirror of unshackled imagination, the longing to be more than overwhelmed bird in the blind, furious storm that twirls the living… Me, the immortal warmth. graceful and fair, born of desperate yearning for sense... Here I come, my darling, a Goddess floating back to her creator, to love you just as you’ve dreamed of... to give you my breathe when the burdens are to choke your soul… to kiss your wounds with the healing balm of lips which don’t know to lie, neither harm, but melt the cold, grotesque truths of unevolved worlds into powerful designs of change with pure humanist meanings… to bathe your worries in my deep, restful eyes and fade them through veils of understanding and love… so you can rise with thrilling crown of happiness on your temples, brighter than a Morningstar in its glory... more generous in sharing than a Sun… >>
