    Lightbulb My "Inquisition"

    Hi there! One year ago I started my new painting “Inquisition”. Now I have finished this artwork and want to show the result to you. I hate violence. Violence is main theme of this painting. Why we had tortures at all of the times? Both in the medieval times and in our time. This painting is my way to express my pain, what I feel when I see the violence. You see the tortures of the people by inquisitors.

    Inquisition. The Dogs of God. Oil on canvas, 3,65m x 2,4m (146 x 96 in.). 2010

    This painting has a lot of symbols and may some details that hard to understanding. As example the chain in the arm of Pope. I included that because inquisition was initiated by Church priesthood . Ask me please about such symbols.

    At my previous thread you can see this work in progress http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=578835

    So I am very waiting for your replies and also hope you will have a nice trip into my art web gallery http://www.painterilya.com/indexE.htm

    And the last one. At this time my Jubilee Exposition (to 60 Years old) is going in Kazan city, Russia. If you are able to visit this exposition I will be happy to meet you. Ask me if you have any question about this expo. You can write directly into contact@painterilya.com

    How did you get that out of your appartment? On Wetcanvas I see that you don´t have a studio.

    Now I will take a look at your website..........

    I have a book called Russian Fairy Tales, while socially out of context for me (born/raised in US) there is are heavy warnings about clergy. I think the work done is great, it reminds me of the large scale scenes old masters would do when dealing with huge concepts.
    I will now of course have to visit your site!

    Amazing effort. Beautiful painting, all in all. It is more than clear that you have a thorough knowledge of anatomy, as well as an excellent sense of form and how volumes sit in space. And yet, I can't help but notice the right arm on the bending figure on the lower left: how the extensors are attached, not to the radius (as they are in the left arm, and in all other figures) but to the ulna, instead. Given your evident knowledge of anatomy, I assume it was deliberate. It caught my attention right away, becoming, as it were, a focal point in itself. Done with such a convincing sense of form and volume in space, however, rather than looking like simply a "mistake", it somehow adds to the inhuman, yet all too human, violence that is portrayed.

    You Are right. I haven`t my own studio so I am working on my small flat. So the size of "Inquisition" is equal to the size of the wall:-) Also the lighting is big problem.

    To get out this painting from my appartment I take of the canvas from stretcher and roll up it.
