“This is a mind mirror. A mirror which tell the story in your mind about your relationship with someone you're close to. The hand around the neck could be a metaphor of protection and security; in the same time, it could bring the meaning of strangle and powerless.”
Collected in the 17/18 series: The Colors In Life, Lavennz is borrowing these artworks to promote the importance of inner health and self-awareness, after her observation on the changes in the society and people surrounding her.
She saw herself as one of them who live in an outwardly-focused world, where satisfaction and happiness need to be measured by who she is and what she have, where personal achievement need to be measured by what other is doing and how other see it. Such scenario is promoting resentment on one’s living situation and a house full of clutters. Hence, Lavennz wish to inspire people take a moment just for themselves and observing all the pictures and voices appeared in their heart through looking at her works.
The painting was painted with multiple layers of oil paints and embellished with beautiful metallic gold ink on cradled wood panel, measuring 14 inches by 18 inches with 3/4 inches depth.
The painting was completed in 2017. It is sold with white wooden floater frame, ready to hang on wall and has been varnished with Gamvar picture varnish.
