Karl Mata Hipol, Active Member, Garden as Metaphor of Life
78" x 48", Acrylic, acrylic gouache and acrylic skin on Denim, CAN$3,800.00 Unframed - Available for Sale
This painting visualizes our current situation: A chaotic, dystopia infiltrated with numerous adversaries personified through hatred, discrimination, fear, anger, confusion, and where everything seems uncertain. Just like how Garden mirrors life, we are probably in the season in which we are overwhelmed with so many unwanted weeds, pests, poor soil, and drought and in the state where it feels exhausting and stressful. When everything piles on, one cannot twig the root of all these difficulties. Although, at the same time, hopeful! Because amidst the darkness of the situation, everyone strives to balance out each other, harmonizing together to reach their end goal. One goal and that is to surpass all these challenges and face a new tomorrow! A better tomorrow is once going to bloom again. Spring will come to flourish us with a peaceful paradise anew.
