Reflection

by Da Mai Sin 1979


































Reflection

The plastic image raises the issue of compositional space from an artistic, philosophical and metaphysical point of view. After a careful analysis a question arises: what is the compositional space challenged? The one of the main structure or the inner frame? The anthropomorphic element points out his presence through absence in metaphorical terms that refer to another dimension of existence.
You might think that the message of the picture depends exclusively on the connection of both spaces, resulting in a single work by means of a metaphysical understanding in which the space of the light that is salvation is the mental projection of man. The human figure reflects this projection into a total detachment from the material world into a spiritual abandonment that creates sculptural images. The sharp contrast between the light projected by the mental image and the darkness in which the human figure is wrapped determines the contours of another fictional universe that reveals further our ephemeral condition. The face in semi-profile towards darkness and the depth internalized by the darkness expresses the dissolution of matter in the lower part of the picture, a sort of cancellation of his physicality, then salvation comes from metaphysics with the power of the mind, with our ability to give birth to worlds of light and salvation. The sentences written vertically seem to contain the will of the human figure whose thoughts are not expressed verbally.

Compelling - colorwise, you show drama where needed without overdoing it. Again, the layout is fine and very much explains your story. Thank You, E
