Torn . Apart
For depthCORE Verve

This is a very emotional piece from me. I haven't done any piece of art for 2 months and the feeling was very strange when I started a new one.

But suddenly something happened in my life about friends and love, and it was all very critical. The situation between me and one of my best friends changed and I was so hurt and confused. At the same time, I had some unpleasant discussion over depthCORE with other members, and their ignorance clearly annoyed me. Everything was so hurting and I was torn apart.

And I made this. The feeling of being torn apart was like the pulling of muscles, the detachment of belief inside me. The two parts of the images are so different, as the smooth pulled upper part is against the solid and sharp structure. They were together, emtwining, but now they are seprarated. It was painful.

But the light behind the area where the muscle is pulled apart symbolizes something more. While it may be leaving a wound, but the light can be intepretated as the pulling-back power. While something is hurt, anothe thing is back to heal it. It is the power of love in reality. She supported me and calmed me down, and she is like the light in this "wound", which is not dark or bloody. The light fills the gap, and the healing is also happening.

Luckily I am feeling much better now.

And really nothing special. Don't expect much from me please.
