MAN IN BLACK – Original. Acrylic on canvas, 40x60x2 cm, 2018
This original artwork uses a unique combination of acrylic paint on stretched canvas. Framing is not required. The artwork is signed on the front, provided with a certificate of authenticity and is sold unframed, ready to hang.
With “Man in Black”, Syona explores what she calls “The Connection”. The viewer is invited to “connect with the painting”. Usually this is done by watching the painting with a “neutral mind”, no expectations, no judgment, no prejudice… Maybe even, with half eyes. Got there? Now, can you see the black silhouette with a golden chain around the neck? Can you also see the two ladies on his left? They are seen from the back and have faces turned to each other. Or maybe is only one lady facing herself in a mirror… Syona is daring us to connect and see whatever the painting has in store for us, for our own perception. Are we ready for it?
Artwork acclaimed at Syona’s solo show “The Journey | Le Voyage”, at the “Au Fond Du Bois” Gallery, in Tervuren, Belgium, from 3 to 9 February 2020
