Wrath is finished


canvas, acrylic, oil
30. x 25. cm.
Lorna Marrison

Wrath is uncontrollable anger or rage.

When showing this painting to family and friends I realised that other people interpret this image differently. The signs for wrath here are personal to me. Starting with the red acrylic toned canvas. Red signifies extremes for me and in this case blood and passion. I allowed it to penetrate all the paint.  If you click on the image to enlarge the men you will notice that they are sightless: the one by his blank glasses and the other by not having a pupil.  This signifies the lack of direction or understanding in their rage. Finishing with the closeness of their faces and the raised stick/weapon.
