“Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I’m only falling apart
There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart…” – Bonnie Tyler lyrics Total Eclipse Of The Heart
Spiritual Mystical Painting of male figure in light by Nik Helbig.
Acrylics on canvas
120cm x 90cm
This painting of the male figure in expression with light is described by some kids who have stumbled on this site as “emo”. So let’s just say emo painting it is.
Strong contrasts in light effects create that. This one is special , since it is light shining straight at the viewer, only to be blocked by the male figure. This is an eclipse. It demonstrates an emotion where one is feeling down, with the light shut out. But hey… The light is still there!
The eclipse is a mirror of the psychology of art. Light is blocked or hindered by something, it give the emotion of something that is there but missing.
