China Mug Fine Art Print Titled Consumed
This painting expresses the technique of meditation and living a life in a humble buddhist way. The boy is swirling around underwater, almost uncontrollably. It’s a metaphor for how we all feel in life sometimes. The decisions we make are mainly down to acquiring money and getting employment. That may not be what we want to choose, but we have no choice but to adhere to the capitalist world. My painting hopefully provokes feelings of being under the weight of circumstance. If you have suffered from depression and anxiety, you will understand that feeling i’m trying to express. Sometimes, you will come out of a stressful situation or state of mind. It’s almost like, bursting out from being submerged underwater. You may find you have years, or even seconds, to feel free and happy and content before you are overwhelmed and plunged deep underwater where you’re battling your dark thoughts and responsibilities.
