Abstract expression – He made a foolish decision – The third of a series of four
This is the third work in the series of digital abstract expressionist artworks by Bert Ernie. These paintings are an attempt to express the meaning of life, living and death. They try and show what it is to be human.
Human lives are incredibly complex. We have a range of emotions from extremes of sadness to exhilarating joy. These emotions are intertwined and connected to the rich tapestry of human experiences as we travel through life.
Bert’s brother Luke passed away on April 15th 2016. These four digital abstract works of art are extremely powerful works of art. They are great metaphors for the human existence. Complex, dynamic, convoluted, joyous and sad these are the elements that make up every humans life. Bert believes there is no better way to express these powerful emotions than with abstract expressionism.
When someone commits suicide they can no longer see any prospect for joy to come into their lives in the future.
They are making a foolish decision because that is never the case.
Every human experiences profound and desperate sadness.
They need to remember that things always get better.
It’s just a matter of time.
Bert’s brother Luke failed to recognize this – he felt he was trapped in his horrible existence.
And Luke made a foolish decision.
One from which there is no turning back.
He never got to complete his story, his dynamic tapestry of life.
This painting (and the others in the series) is about life, living and death.
