Valentine’s Day almost here. This is next art from collection “Love”. The first was drawing “Looking for love”.
The art presents illegal production of love potion somewhere in the dark forest. The potion is boiled in cauldron and it is almost ready. The floating around vapors with bubbles are so intensive, cat that walks its own paths, decided to check what’s happening. It is walking and staring into the vapors.
When you look at the painting you wonder does the love potion even exists? Some very old sources say that woman, who want the other man love her, has to add her menstrual blood to man’s beverage. I think it’s disgusting and I couldn’t look at the man who is drinking such thing. To be honest I don’t know any person who did something like that, so I cannot confirm is it really working.
On the other hand love potion prepared in this way or another acts as drag or alcohol? Temporary action and when it is expelled from the body a man has a hangover. Or maybe it acts like a virus or and his action is permanent and cannot be removed?
Technique: acrylic on stretched canvas. (edges painted). Size: 30×40 cm
