Faces Behind The Candle


Prem Kumar


Painting - Oil On Canvas


This is an abstract oil painting. At first glance, you might only make out a candle in the painting, but I have tried to paint more than just the candle. I have described two faces using the outline of the same candle and its flame in the painting. These faces belong to a mother, and on the right side of the painting is her child. I have not painted their eyes, because I wanted to keep them silent. Silent and silently hidden. You might also notice that their faces depict pain. I have used a darker shade of line where their eyebrows should be, to depict unhappiness. This way, I have hidden their pain right in the background, in a way similar to most of the human feelings that generally remain hidden in the subconscious. Therefore what is displayed out to the world is just a cheerful yellow candle...
In the base of the painting, you can see a distorted hand in yellow. This is a child's hand, and it is trying to touch the mother. This touch, this sensation, I have noticed, is the most assuring sensation a child can feel...
Why are these two characters sad? You might also notice a gathering of white dots surrounding the candle. What are these? I have an answer, but I would not want to influence your own perspective... Over these parts, I would rather not use words. Lets let the painting describe these things.
Lastly, I enjoyed very much when I was painting this picture. It is difficult to describe the joy of making it. I hope you would like it too.
Thank you...
