Artist: Eman Elnezami
Work of Art: Dive Into Love
This is an oil painting , real size is 12" x 16"
I painted it after I captured really messy and mixed emotions from people . When you look into the eyes, it is a very different space. I had a friend who cried and felt like she wanted to hold onto the tree to survive. Her lips are vivid, the muddy color on her cheeks where things are not clear. the intelligence in her eyes and them looking to the infinity relying on the knowing that she is capable of handling anything she is going through. The darkness in her neck is formed into a tree root that you can grab and ascend .There is an inside laughter, INNER JOY, a party ready to come out at any time in her lips as if she WANTS to feel better.
What if you can see into her eyes can resonate with something inside you? What if you set an intention to look at this painting everyday? What is it is saying something you need this day? Dive into it and notice, it is full of colors gouache is used beneath her forehead in violet warm way and in the extreme right corner as well. While you tap into the eyes you can see a beam of light, INTELLIGENCE and golden points of light in them . There are these two blue lines that run down her cheek, her state is far from sadness. I am seeing them as tears running beneath this apparently QUIET face. This is a GIANT tree of a woman. HER hair is the leaves and the stem is her neck but you decide what it is representing!
The little mud beneath her eye tells a story of previous scar or previous pain. Her life VIBRANT red cheeks and lips are like a clown face, this could be a falsified attempt by her to understand beauty! Her branches continue beyond in the background. She continues to choose herself as a tree, BRANCHED , ROUGH, CHAOTIC , WITH BIG BLUE EARRINGS, what would you choose ?

I am a physician, who started using oil painting as my own tool to release stress and HEAL my own inner soul . I believe the emotional art is a bridge between your inner-self and outer appearance. I used them as following; put intention into a painting everyday like motivation and dive into some part for ex the eyes, I see something that motivates me forward.Whatever intention you put, you get . Also being in contact with different people every single day made me carry emotions that are not mine and I needed a channel to get them through, exciting thing happened, every single one of them contains mixed amount of emotions so you will find at least one emotion that you will feel. I paint interactions between people as well, woman and her child, coworkers, friends .These are similar to everyday interactions. Something in common in all my work. You will feel something! I use oil on canvas in all my work. I fell in love with the similarity between emotions of human kind, it is all the same! Instead of feeling the pain inside I strongly believe that you can get them up in front of you seeing, acknowledging and releasing them . Take as much time as you would like in front of them.
