Artwork is a strange thing. Whether it be musical, sculptural, oral, written, painted, drawn or performed it has the power to awaken emotions in people. Art gives us the opportunity to feel emotions in a safe environment. Sadness and loss can be shared as safely as joy and happiness without every having to actually experience the true cause of the emotion. Art is a safety barrier for humans to practice their emotional reactions to life’s challenges.
But that’s not all that art does for us. It can also be a powerful metaphor, message and thematic communication.
I don’t know what this piece of art is trying to say. To me it reminds me of escaping, and freedom. I like freedom and sometimes I like to escape.
