Part of my series, "Intra-Psychic musings"
The set of figuratives is my on-going series, loosely titled as "Intra-psychic communion". Nudes here represent complete psychological nudity in facing self, stripped off every defence. The theme essentially revolves around the masculine/feminine coding socially received, developted and acted upon with neglect of the other side and therefore the aftermath in our existence. A balanced state is where the masculine and feminine parts of self are in complete harmony with each other (represented through the two works on Communion) thus imparting a certain peace to the soul and giving the ability to act authentic, make choices without a care for stigma, and find fulfilment.*******
This work represents the angst of existence, with its pain, sorrow and seeming futility of several acts which were willingly undertaken in a honest manner which only seem to deliver blows through misread intentions. It is utterly unclear as to why this is my lot. I seem to suffer from the nagging question "Why Me". The wise have asked me to examine "Why not me" as a pivot to look at my life from, in terms of all that my pain has gifeted me - sensitivity, sensibility, wisdom and maturity. The angst still haunts. Am I beset with a set of prescriptions and unwilling to proceed without Guarantee cards ? What do I do next ? How do I reconcile the emotional rush which is so womanly with my masculinity ? How can a 'strong' man like me feel ? Ain't I supposed to show only my strength and not my vulnerability ? The Whys and Hows have bogged me down......
