Type of Art: Photography
The above piece amazes me a lot because it shows a very striking picture amidst its simplicity. The entire structure is a perfect conglomeration of silent emotions and loud gesture. The kind of gesture that the model is showing is just enough - enough to reveal the message. It has an overflowing potential of knocking at the spectator's sleeping curiosity. The entire scene might be considered by some as strange and less dramatic, but it absolutely caters its main goal and that is to show the people the message that it tries to give - the message of the fifth element called love.Colorless? Who cares? What matters most is the intention of the artist to give emphasis on the word "love". That's the main principle and it did work! And for me, it is the most dramatic emphasis that one could give - less face, more meaning.
Beyond the Usual:
"Love" (the above piece) teaches us one thing - to love unconditionally. The remarkable gesture of the model tells us that love shouldn't be based on what we can see, it should be based solely on what we can feel. Why? Because that's what unconditional love is all about. It is a kind of love that is not based on knowing and accepting all of those superficial characteristics that is visually acceptable. Instead, it is a kind of love that goes deeper and deeper each time an unwanted imperfection has been unveiled.
As a conclusion, unconditional love is something that we should be aiming for. Why? Because loving unconditionally is the most perfect way of expressing and sharing the love that God has given us. It is a love that's not ordinary because it can only be produced in an extraordinary way. No superficial spark, no boundaries, and [most of all] no strongholds. TEMPORARY will never have a place on this kind of love... only PERMANENCE.
