ABOUT ARTWORK

In my quest for a healthier life, I began to reflect on the myriad of substances we consume compulsively that alter our mental and emotional states.

From a young age, we are introduced to addictive substances such as sugary treats and junk food, often used as rewards or treats. This early association between consumption and positive emotions, combined with the pleasurable taste, can lead to ongoing struggles with substance abuse throughout our lives. We may overindulge in an attempt to compensate for other unmet needs.

Inspired by Roald Dahl's beloved story "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory," I created the painting "Seduction of Indulgence."
The character of the Candyman is influenced by Marilyn Manson, portraying a sinister version of Willy Wonka. The green "bong hat" is reminiscent of Marilyn Manson's "Willy Wonka" themed music video, "Dope Hat," which comments on the deceptive allure of drugs and those who peddle them.

We all seek a bit of sweetness in life, but where do we draw the line? Even something as innocent as a morning coffee can become addictive. People find amusement in various things, such as drugs, money, guns, and power, using them to self-indulge or self-medicate, attempting to escape the harsh realities or to manipulate their inner and outer worlds.

As someone who is visually impaired, creating this painting was an exceptional challenge that took me nearly two years, with breaks and periods of rest.

This artwork belongs to a collection called 'Soulscapes,' representing a genuine self-portrait from within. It captures the complexities and struggles of navigating a world filled with alluring temptations and the constant battle to find balance and live a healthier, more fulfilling life.
