My motivation for this painting:
"Knowing," featuring a color palette of red, orange, white, and gold, draws its motivation from the concept of self-awareness, inner wisdom, and the journey of understanding oneself deeply. In this painting, I seek to capture the essence of intuitive knowledge and the transformative power that comes from embracing one's own truths. The choice of colors carries symbolic meaning:
Red: Red often symbolizes passion, energy, and a strong connection to emotions. It represents the intensity of self-discovery and the courage to delve into one's inner world.
Orange: Orange signifies creativity, enthusiasm, and the awakening of the senses. It embodies the vibrant energy that accompanies the process of self-exploration.
White: White represents purity, clarity, and the illumination of truth. It embodies the transparency and authenticity that emerge when we delve into self-awareness.
Gold: Gold symbolizes value, enlightenment, and the preciousness of self-discovery. It represents the wisdom that is gained through understanding oneself on a deeper level.
"Knowing" encapsulates the idea of self-awareness, of gaining insight into one's own thoughts, emotions, and motivations. It embodies the journey of uncovering the layers of one's identity and understanding one's unique essence. It's my hope that this painting will invite viewers to reflect on their own paths of self-discovery and the moments of intuitive understanding they have experienced. It might evoke feelings of introspection, curiosity, and the courage to embrace one's authentic self.
