THE REBELLION - By Eman Elnezami

Immortal Artist seeks to give a venue for creatives to discuss and show specific pieces of their work. We want to give you a forum to talk about the history and development of specific pieces of art. If you would like more information please check out the following link.

Artist: Eman Elnezami
Location: Egypt
Work of Art: The Rebellion

Oil painting on canvas 12" x 16"

The Rebellion is about a woman in her twenties or thirties, who has different mixture of emotions going on. Anger, violence and determination are the top three that you will feel. Her face has a sharp contour, sharp jaw line and muscular straight neck. You will intensely feel that it is only the top of the iceberg where bigger and deeper emotional sharpness lies beneath .These eyes are challenging, looking sharply at the target she has with such intense determination and insistence. Her angry face can also be seen as a violent form of expressing herself especially with this strong pale colored fist where you see her own hand in motion, in three directions actually, she is willing to hit someone or something covering a part of her own face with her fist. She is a woman who is truly hiding behind her expression of violence and anger. Her hair is flowing backwards over her broad forehead leaving her face and eyes exposed to whatever she is looking at, even the colors blending in her hair will bring anger more in your experience looking into the painting. This is a woman who decided to take a rough move in life. Where are you standing in relationship to this woman? Whether you are a man or woman, have you ever been in a situation where you felt you have to be violent ? What other choices can be there for you ? What is the true definition of strength you have ? What emotions do you have regarding this woman ? Did you love her, empathize ,judged her ? What is your own story??

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.
