My new painting, ‘Reasons to Life’ is created from inspirations by listening the ceaseless soaring echoes of a highway near my studio- a random subject, selected as a ‘DA VINCI’S TECHNIQUE/METHOD’. The goring and horns from the vehicles, especially during the night is a curious activity if a reason or answer behind it. The listener has every freedom to imagine for a theory about the activity in different ways as philosophical and unprejudiced. My pictorial/subjective method on this matter is that, modern ‘antediluvian’ animals passing through the highway violently as chasing each other interminably. This thought is just an imagination but a reality in it as that, most of the moving machines run by fossil fuels especially petroleum- a bio substance, seasoned by time from animals and plants. The modern human civilization is practically amended to technologies run by fossil fuels and automobiles are the impartible companions to man’s daily life. The character in this painting supposedly rejects some massive weights of fossil fuels placing on him- which he had not asked or wished- but the nature placing those on him deliberately and violently. The nature purposely adopted and brilliantly designed human beings as an enormous ‘consumer’ to stabilize its bio symmetry and constructed and adjusted human brain and body inaudibly and efficiently for creating and constructing technologies powered by fossil fuels- its basic elements or possessions littered beneath for millions of years in unconventional forms. You cannot keep aside a single object untouched by fossil fuels in the modern life and you definitely buy more cosmetics, made with the support of fossil fuels than poetry during your entire life.
