Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is one of fifteen paintings in my Chakra Rainbow Oil Painting Series. Each painting depicts a state of balance or imbalance in the human energy field.
The Silenced represents an imbalanced throat chakra. A woman gagged and silenced in a Brank's mask. This painting depicts the struggle of women's voices to be heard. It is also a play on sterile, technological sound and language drowning out opportunities for natural, organic communication. I did not paint this to glorify its darker concepts, but to illustrate the concept of what it feels like to struggle to be heard and the voice to be honored.
The guiding pricipals behind both the imbalance of the fifth chakra and The Silenced are the restriction of the voice and the sterilization of pure, organic communication. This painting specifically represents female voices being silenced and drowned out by modern technology and overstimulation of the senses. A woman a in branks mask screams and tries to tune out electronic noise.
