The Flame

Rs.12,000 Inc. Tax

The portrait becomes a work of a versatile genius because of one simple element, the light illuminating its subject. In fact, the flame from the light becomes the most dominant feature in the painting. It illuminates the face of the subject with a hallowed light, focused especially on her face and tresses. It illuminates the sharp lines on her feature and the translucent beauty of her tresses, admiring it in a manner that is almost similar to the viewer. Hence, the flame helps to accentuate the subject of the painting as well as working on the backdrop. There is no particular sense of space or perception to the background, constituted almost entirely of red. Hence, the background constitutes of only that which the flame itself illuminates. Here, the painting in its totality is constituted by that which the flame illuminates and vice versa, the illumination of the flame becomes the painting in its entirety. Hence, there is a subtle play with the iconography of the portrait. This invokes emotions of loneliness and solitude. These feelings are further accentuated by such dark colors as red, purple and brown that has been used as undertones to play around with the general mood.
