All in the Same Boat
Painting, 52 x 70 cm

About this artwork: This painting is one of the Beautiful Seeds of Destruction series. It depicts the dangerous beauty of disease and its effects on the human host. This art work expresses the idea that disease spreads with equality; all humanity is at its mercy. Nobody can predict where it will strike. The underlying metaphor is that communities can be caught up in the midst of political situations beyond their control. The artist employs the whirling technique to produce the image. He created this new style of oil painting by adapting the forms of traditional Turkish marbling, which is a water based technique to imprint designs onto paper. The result generates a similar visual effect to marbling although the technique is entirely different.
