TRAPPED, IN YOUR BODY, MIND OR SOUL, ANOTHER IN THE SERIES OF ABSTRACT FIGURATIVE ARTWORKS


product-152893-1245945140This contemporary abstract figurative art painting represents to me that feeling of being trapped. It’s a feeling that everyone has felt at some point or another in their lives. Maybe you are in a job that you despise but can’t find the courage or the means to leave. Perhaps your relationship makes you unhappy but your desire to not hurt another human being leaves you with no choice but to tough it out. Or your body has betrayed you in some way, through a sickness or injury. You feel trapped within your own body or mind, numb to the world around you. That is how this painting makes me feel, it reminds me of the terrible burden that trapped feeling has on our souls. How we owe it to ourselves to let go and choose the path that truly belongs to us alone. How each one of us longs for true happiness and freedom.

  1. Hi there, like your artwork! I’m using your painting ‘Trapped’ for my theory work for an assigment about artists representing the feeling of being trapped and just wondering the original size and medium of the art work?
    Thanks a lot 🙂

    • Hi Jess,

      I am honoured that you choose this piece for your theory work! The original size was 16×20 inches and it was done on gallery stretched canvas with acrylic paint and some light plaster texture in the background.

      I hope that helps!
      Laura
