Artist Statement

‘True Love Never Fade’ portrays multiple figures being stacked together in a square. The subject matter used is a number of contortionists filling up a box. The figures are done using charcoal to perhaps emphasize and dramatize the act through the play of light and shadow on the subject. The red dot on the bottom left side of the drawing is painted using Cinnabar. Cinnabar is red or orange-ish mineral which is known for its color and mercury content.

The artist wishes to convey that lust can be the death of mankind. Not necessarily in pertaining to sexual desire per se but also the hunger for endless wealth and the dominance of power. The red dot represents the hazardous quality that could ruin the entirety of humanity. The dot is purposely placed in random part of the painting and not to censor certain part of the subject which can be deemed sensitive to some. Meanwhile, the multiple subjects who filled up the tiny square are there perhaps to emphasize on the struggle and tension both visually and contextually.
