Lonely - Art


In Lonely, a single, dark orb, cut off from all contact by the dangerous elements of its environment, inhabits a desolate landscape. The dark, monochromatic landscape imbues this painting with a melancholy, depressive mood. The blackness of this piece calls to mind the loneliness of the night, when fears and nightmares surface, and the sky is a dark ocean of solitude.

A dark and forbidding wall of clouds cuts the lonely little circle off from the light, lonely in its seclusion. This darkened, alternate moon is a sorrowful figure, and it evokes sympathy in the painting’s viewer. The dark, sad mood of this painting is evocative and strangely beautiful in its loneliness. Lonely is a beautiful, emotionally affecting piece that creates a vividly realized mood.
