la nostra infinita abnegazione by agnes-cecile la nostra infinita abnegazione by agnes-cecile

è un'abnegazione reciproca
prima rinuncia uno, poi così fa l'altro.
abnegazione per abnegazione
porta a non incrociarsi mai
a far sì che non ci sia mai un punto di contatto

- our endless abnegation

it's a mutual abnegation
at first, one gives up, then so does the other.
when abnegation meets abnegation
there's no crossing
no contact
no relief whatsoever

watercolor, pencil, charcoal, acrylic and pen on paper

When I see this, I can feel as if an increasing tension was being relieved, the tears can show the suffering, but their expression at the same time communicate tranquility. There is an interesting contrast, between the colors and the meaning of this work. The title, la "la nostra infinita abnegazione" (our infinite abnegation) says a lot, a mutual intense feeling, that is displayed as a kinesthetic image.

The composition enhances the visual experience, all the energy flowing with such movement and strength from the center, together with the tears, everything else flies away, everything that was accumulating letting only that relief that can be seen in their expression.

unbelievable work, totally non-conventional, absolutely communicative and aesthetic.

I am speechless. When I look at this piece, I feel so many emotions flood over me, and it's so indescribable. This piece is so detailed, from the contrast, to the anatomy. Watching the speed paint of this work really brings you into the mindset of the artist, showing their techniques, the style, and most importantly, the way they think.
The contrast of the light, shadow, the vivid color, and bold and lighter colors make this painting so visually appealing. The dripping of the water colors draws the eyes all over the painting.
Personally, when I see this painting, my mind wanders to Eridan and Ferferi from Homestuck, which are two very colorful and unique characters on their own.

This makes me feel how art is magical.
When I see it, I completely forget that it is made of paper and pigments, I'm just carried by the strenght of the emotions and the intensity of the colours. 
It touches me deeply.
