The concept of this artwork is that of a bullet-ride perception. It aims to develop a spark that may communicate a certain advocacy in the form of still image story-telling. Red is but one color but it can be subdivided in a wide variety of hues. Artists have their own personal motive on voicing out something, but these motives then become myriad pathways, paving way to the value of their individual intentions. The paint tube on this painting is a portrayal of what it typically symbolizes - ART! The red paint that flushes out from it visualizes the concept of an artist’s passion, commensurate to their enormous duties. The moment when artists opt to create art, they mean to accept the responsibility to keep on learning, to influence, and to initiate clamor on issues that need to be addressed. The motive is not to impress patrons, but rather to answer the call of natural order and balance. Art is not always worth its true value; and becomes a sham if the artist’s shallow intentions are prioritized over the voice that calls from within.
