Love, Work, Play and Cry, I-VI

Melissa Leaym-Fernandez's avatar Melissa Leaym-Fernandez

This set of 6 canvases explores the conflict between love and hate; virtue and vice, hard work and laziness, service to others and immense selfishness—it explores the hidden talents we all hold. Though some develop them while others live in fear and do not. The set uses color to symbolize the emotions we feel as humans as we strive to be the best we can, as we work to make a better life for our children, and as we just work to survive the challenges of daily life. We hold in us secrets, lies, love, hate, sorrow, joy, and so much more. The Elephants symbolize what we hold inside. The Text symbolizes what influences us externally. The interaction between to two forces is what you see on the canvas for you, the viewer, to ponder.
