About The Artwork:
This black-and-white artwork is a mesmerizing blend of organic and inorganic elements, featuring three stingrays swimming surrounded by wings, an infinity sign, and two hands holding flames.
Stingrays are seen as symbols of grace, adaptability, and danger. Their ability to glide effortlessly through the water represents the idea of moving through life with a sense of fluidity and grace. However, their stingers also represent the potential for danger and harm, reminding us that even the most graceful and adaptable creatures can pose a threat if provoked. Overall, the symbolism of a stingray highlights the importance of balance in navigating life's challenges while being mindful of the potential risks involved.
Flames are often associated with fire, symbolizing renewal and purification across many cultures. Hands with flames in them can be a powerful symbol of passion, transformation, and power. When flames are held in hands, it represents harnessing and controlling that transformative energy. This symbol can also mean a sense of power or agency, as the person holding the flames can channel that energy productively or destructively. Additionally, the hands can be seen as a symbol of creativity and action, suggesting that the flames represent the creative force that motivates us to act and make a difference in the world.
Wings with stars are a symbol of freedom, aspiration, and achievement. Wings are often associated with flight and the ability to transcend earthly limitations, while stars symbolize inspiration and guidance. The combination of wings and stars suggests a sense of aspiration toward achieving something more significant and the potential to transcend barriers.
"Around Eight" is an empowering piece that encourages us to embrace change and travel far on our own life's journey.
"For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It's always our self we find in the sea."
