Dilara Astam




Title: Medusa
Year: 02-05-2022
Size: 90X90CM
Technique: Acrylic and spray on canvas

This painting is non-figurative. It is painted with acrylic and spray paint. You see a bunch of hair flying around the center of the painting. It looks like the hair is dancing in circular motion. Almost hypnotic and seductive like; ‘Medusa’. ‘’Those who gazed into her eyes would turn to stone’’. The hair is painted very detailed and delicate. In some parts, a bit vaguer than the others. This creates depth in the painting. It also gives you the feeling as if in some places the hair sinks into the wa-ter. The center of the painting is white/light in color that slowly fades into an aqua and/or green color and the hairs are black in color. The abstraction gives you a supernatural and divine feeling. It evokes a sense of stillness, like a moment captures in time.
