Peca shares in the caption about the triptych: "Polaris, is inspired by the north star of the constellation Ursa Minor. I use the illuminated strawberry as a symbol of the spirit, vital impulse, and intuition. It guides us and points us to our north, hence the name Polaris for this triptych. The three paintings represent the circular movement of the constellation around Polaris, us and our intuition.”
“Opinions of others. Expectations. Thoughts that they know what is best for you. It feels like pressure. Like pressure that strangles you. Chokes you. And thus forces you to bend. To please the others, to relieve the pain.”
@susitse.art aka Essi Välimäki holds a truly amazing power: She not only addresses mental health and social pressure on the point but frames her pieces within her illustrations in a very relatable way. She captions this piece further:
“The illusion of being tied up is not real. That's why there might be a chance to fight against the choking pressure. It all depends on us, on what we decide. How hard we decide to fight the pressure. Pulling yourself off your invisible chains can be painful, but it’s a pain worth suffering, a battle worth fighting for. Because it’s a fight for life that is our own.”
A stunning digital watercolor piece by @iraklinadar! The artist dedicates his work to hyperrealistic portraits with a vibe - such as this painting of the model @katyamiro. Is it only me or are you as well getting lost looking into these beautiful eyes?!
Don’t forget to turn the sound on to listen to this ‘Choir’!
@server_demirtas_ has been creating mechanical sculptures for more than two decades. The artist’s idea is to explore the relationship between man and machine, combining human actions and gestures with the robotic appearance of his pieces. We encounter the paradox of human qualities paired with the mechanical outlook of the sculptures and it takes a moment to digest and observe these pieces... - but they truly tickle our minds!
