Forsaken Lust tells the story of a forbidden love and its fear of living it out.
You can put this image in many different perspectives.
- The Cultural or Religious difference of two persons.
There are still many couples on this world which hide their love from society in fear to get discriminated by their culture or their religious difference. Like in medieval times people have to go through a lot of hurt since others (mostly parents) forbid their love to excist.
- The Love of the same gender
In todays society the people handle the theme “Gay” with a bit more tolerance as they did earlier. Of course many people still point their fingers on this way of ‘love’ and condemn couples with hate, discrimination and cruelty.
I could give a few more examples, but I think you get the point :)
What I wanted to show with this picture is the fear of two persons to live out their love since family or culture discriminates them to have it. Remember few months ago the case in the middle east where a girl loved a guy from another culture, and the entire village discriminated her on the open street (even her parents joined), took all her rights and in the end stoned her to death. And why? Because “someone” thought their love is inappropriate, which is BS.
Love is a force given by the force we know all as God/Allah/Heavenly Father/Lord and etc. No rule in any religion forbids love or harassess young couples from loving each other. People who “hurt” because of “love” are the criminals, not the loving pair.
No human right, no religion in this world forbids love, it is only the people with ignorant perspectives and stubborn minds who destroy the true meaning of love.
No love in this world is forbidden, love is a basic human emotion with the most misjudget life-needful impact. Love handled right expands and enlarges your life and fullfills your body with happyness, joy and tender loving care.
Love handles wrong is humans most deadliest weapon, it can destory humans, their identications, minds and most shockingly their entire life.
This artwork screams for more tolerance in this world, say NO to racism. Say NO to cultural/religious/sexual harrassment, discrimination and abuse. Say NO to isolation.
I don’t say let us all touch us by the hand and build a chain, I say, protect the worlds most sacred force; love. Everyone deserves love, in the face of God we are all the same.
