What makes us human - painting by Feteema Aljabiri"In my painting "What makes us human", I used the concept of yin-yang to express the balance of emotions that make us humans. Yin-yang is a Chinese philosophical notion that emphasises how seemingly opposing elements in the natural world may be complementary, and how they can give existence to each other as they associate. In the artwork, there is a woman in the centre, the focus of attention, surrounded by sunflowers and ravens. Sunflowers indicate strength, optimism, sunlight, adoration, and loyalty, while ravens represent loss, impending doom, grief, and perhaps evil. In this way, ravens represent yin while sunflowers represent yang. These subjects surround the woman as if they are a part of her and influence on her. This represents the idea that we require both good and bad in order to be human, balanced, and at peace. This is why she appears serene, comfortable, and unconcerned; she looks at the audience innocently because she has both emotions. The picture emphasises the importance of both sadness and happiness in maintaining harmony and sustenance. Without sadness, happiness has no meaning. Humans need both in order to be balanced, achieving peace, the yin and the yang." ... See MoreSee Less

Meanwhile, enjoy these works. ... See MoreSee Less
