Riot. "Avatar".

“Rebellion” is an understanding of the processes that ripen in the bowels of society in all countries of the world. The social, property, cultural polarization of society has hit humanity. The tragedy is that if you continue to turn a person into an adjustable mechanism, this will lead to an exponential increase in entropy and a strong explosion.

The canvas is full of deep tragedy. There are no positive and negative characters in the plot. Both sides are bound by mutual violence. The artist has compassion for the giant naked and blinded by blood, who is open and vulnerable to the punitive means of the system. But the same sympathy is evoked by the defenders of the existing order, faced with an uncontrolled instinctively acting destructive force.

“Blood for Blood” is a tragic story for everyone. Whoever wins, he will always be Pyrrhic.

The author sympathizes with all his characters, but sympathizes in different ways. Law enforcement officials who die in the battle with the rebellious giant evoke sympathy for the senselessness and namelessness of their forced victims. Their misunderstanding and horror, their instant recognition of their own powerlessness before the giant generates pity, another thing is the rebel himself. This is a complex image that evokes the very opposite associations in memory. The almost literal repetition of the pose and the immense power of the image refer us to the figure of Christ in the last judgment of Michelangelo. The tragic scene is read as the time of Judgment Day when retribution begins. But the author, unlike his predecessor, does not admire the plasticity and beauty of the muscular body, does not have illusions about the outcome of the conflict, does not romanticize his hero. He is full of sympathy and compassion. He understands that spontaneous, unconscious protest is doomed, that the giant is vulnerable and defenseless, blind and cruel.

At the same time, there is something in the work of the chthonic horror of “Saturn devouring his son” with the brush of Goya, and the victim of his “Execution of the rebels”.

Naturalism and expression of the image are bordered by naturalism and expression of the Isengheim altar, black-and-white solutions make you remember the great masters of ciaroscro.
