Pay your fee, says Charon
Charon is the Greek god of the underworld, whose duty is to ferry over the river of death the souls of the newly deceased. This artwork is an analytical composition, based on a feeling of inner and eternal coldness, reflected in this poem:
Grief will eat through your soul.
A frame of ice from all sides.
Charon is calling out:
“Pass your fee for the ride!”
And outside is all ice.
A thousand cold dead years.
There’s no discount for you,
No discount, he says.
- Ivan Davydov

Toronto-based Dina Belaia uses dry media (graphite, pastel), occasionally opting for mixed media. She follows the school of Analytical Art whereby one draws the essence of things rather than the surface, leading the viewer to reflect on matters of inner life and the human condition.
"Look inside. Be interested not in the face of the clock, but in the inner mechanism to understand progression of time."
