The pain of cluster headache by agnes-cecile The pain of cluster headache by agnes-cecile

I made this painting for a project about Cluster Headache (for info….
I was contacted by Al.ce Cluster Europe… to create this piece of art for it to be exposed in their art gallery dedicated to such disease.
The coordinator of the forementioned association, Claudio Geraci, requested some paintings for him about the topic, where as the first painting was the burden, this is the pain.

Acrylic and liquid watercolor on paper. (100cm x 70cm)

RED and Black have always been a Good Choice to describe topics of internal turmoil and Pain. To depict Pain of Enormous proportions with a limited pallet Shows the true craft of a MASTER. I love the concept of the Models Skull exploding and blood and grey matter spewing form it, clearly is an example of the Phrase "A Splitting Headache".

PS: I have seen the Youtube video as well and all I can say is a feat for the EYES. Truly Wonderfully Inspiring and Gorgeous.

I wish I can draw as Courageously as you do...

Keep moving Forward. Regards.

I love this because it differs from your other work! It is very expressive and explosive, and captures the anger or maybe pain in the person's face. I love the style you use with the black paint; how panicked it looks. And the red just completes it. Its very different than alot of your other work, with it's aggressive strokes and dripping. One of my favorites! It is hard to find anything wrong with this painting. It really allows you to feel the emotion in the painting and to connect with it.

You are one of my biggest influences in art, and one of my only influences. thank you for this wonderful piece!

As I wrote, I've done my expression Scream | Pain of inner blackness based on this astonishing piece. It's considered like practice and honor, not robbing. Thank You

Beautiful ! It expresses pretty well how you feel when you're in the middle of it. I have cluster headaches once or more per day. Pretty much every day of the year... since more than 2 years now. Thanks for making it possible to express !
Will it be available as a print someday? I reaaally want to buy one !
