The Nyx Goddess. After Redon

The Nyx Goddess gave birth to twins - Hypnos and Thanantos. The Nyx (The Night) is a daughter of Scottos and Chaos; wife of Erebus (The Darkness).

Hypnos was a primordial deity in Greek mythology, the personification of sleep. He lived in a cave next to his twin brother, Thanatos, in the underworld, where no light was cast by the sun or the moon; the earth in front of the cave was full of poppies and other sleep-inducing plants.

By legends twins are Goddess of Night Dream and Goddess of the Death. People believed that many time ago death was just a long period of sleeping; then people awake from death. But once something happened and everything turns wrong. And now two worlds have little or no connections.

Богиня Никс. После Редона

Богиня Никс родила близнецов – Гипноса и Тананта. Никс (Ночь) — дочь Скоттоса и Хаоса; жена Эреба (Тьмы).
Гипнос был первобытным божеством в греческой мифологии, олицетворением сна. Он жил в пещере рядом со своим братом-близнецом Танатосом в подземном мире, где не было света ни солнца, ни луны; Земля перед пещерой была полна маков и других усыпляющих растений.

По легендам, близнецы – это Бог Ночного Сна и Бог Смерти. Люди верили, что много лет назад смерть была просто длительным периодом сна; Тогда люди пробуждались от смерти. Но однажды что-то случилось и все оборнулось не так. И теперь два мира практически не связаны между собой.

Proud Mother. After Gustav Klimt

This my art work based on my original idea and composition. It is comes to me after I study many paintings of famous artist Gustav Klimt for his style.

Even young woman standing on a globe, and it is a symbol of the Earth, and dark sky with stars and planets symbolized a space behind a baby-girl, my motive definitely staying in emotions rather in symbolic. Flowers, pea-cock bird, patterns are just a supportive decorative elements. > > Back to painting

Collective mind: Creative and Distructive

The picture was painted on the basis of associative thinking on a given topic.

Here is an artist way to present an abstract philosophy statement - idea about collective consciousness that considers relationships between stability and change, individuals and society, rationality, creativity and distractions, even violence.

In general, collective consciousness has a relationship with a collective memory that in theory could be understand as a possibility of share the ideas, knowledges and beliefs people who ever lived before and living now.


Translation/

Картина писалась исходя из ассоциативного мышления на заданую тему.

Это художественный способ представить абстрактное философское утверждение - идею о коллективном сознании, которая рассматривает отношения между стабильностью и изменениями, индивидуумами и обществом, рациональностью, творчеством и отвлечениями, даже насилием.

В целом, коллективное сознание имеет связь с коллективной памятью, которая теоретически может быть понята как возможность делиться идеями, знаниями и убеждениями людей, которые когда-либо жили раньше и живут сейчас.

Pinata Boy With Angel

What does the pinata symbolize?
The original & traditional pinata has seven points symbolizing the seven deadly sins: envy, sloth, gluttony, greed, lust, anger/wrath, and pride. The ten pointed pinata symbolizes the sins that come from breaking the ten commandments. The stick which is used to break the pinata represents and symbolizes love.

Why is the pinata important?
Nowadays in Mexico piñatas are an important part of birthday parties and other parties for children. ... The ones with a pot inside are easier to break because they don't swing so much when you hit them, but they can also pose a danger, of shards flying as the piñata breaks.

Working title of this painting was - Bad Brother Is Still the Brother. Piñata. Meaning a special relationship between an angel and bad boy pinata. While the children and their parents are playing piñata, the angel stands silently behind the people, but sympathizes with the piñata boy, who will soon be beaten according to tradition.

Some people believed that once pinata boy was a fallen angel and represented negative power.

This painting after and in memory of artist Odelon Redon.


Translation/
Мальчик Пиньята И Ангел

Оригинальная и традиционная пиньята имеет семь точек, символизирующих семь смертных грехов: зависть, лень, чревоугодие, жадность, похоть, гнев и гордыню. Десять точек Пиньята символизирует грехи, которые возникают из-за нарушения десяти заповедей. Палка, которая используется для разбивания пиньяты, представляет и символизирует любовь.

Почему пиньята так важна? В настоящее время в Мексике пиньяты являются важной частью празднования дней рождения и других детских праздников. ... Те, что с горшком внутри, легче разбить, потому что Они не так сильно раскачиваются, когда вы ударяете по ним, но они также могут представлять опасность осколков, летящих при поломке пиньяты.

Рабочее название у этой картины было - "Плохой брат - всеравно брат. Пиньята." Указывая на особые отношения между Ангелом и плохим мальчиком Пиньятой, прыдставленным в виде тряпичной куклы.

В то время как дети с родителями играют в пиньяту, ангел безмолвно стоит позади людей, но сочувствует мальчику Пиньята, которого скоро по традиции будут бить.

Некоторые люди верили, что когда-то мальчик Пиньята был ангелом, хотя и падшим ангелом, и олицетворял негативную силу.

Эта картина по мотивам и в память художника Оделона Редона.
