Ink drawing from December 1977 … AFTER a suicide attempt.
Originally drawn on a white paper… somehow got really brownish on my parents’ living-room wall, I think the only drawing of mine which suffered this misfortune. Still, Some people on RB seem to like such effect ;-)

  • Thanks! I am sorry for that feeling… I had it too many times in my life :-(
    This drawing is from very long ago, around 30 years ago, actually… AFTER a suicide attempt. But I thought I was OK at that time, till I looked at the date today (date is cropped, as well as my signature).

  • Oh, you are such a big support! I upload these drawings mainly for you and Helene ;-) Thanks a lot, April, also for all those favorites… good for my fragile self-esteem, which goes downhill too often.

    Perfect depiction….the fetal position is often taken by someone suffering from depression. Fantastic work Gili. xxx

  • Thank you sooo much, Amarica! Hope you are not speaking from own experience… this pain is like the cancer of the soul, eating it up while on the surface all can seem OK… Glad I am not there at the moment.

    Gili, this is an exceptional piece of art! Something good came out of depression after all….

  • Toda mikerev lev, Lior! Yes, my pain and emotional problems have been the main source of my art ;-) I suspect that’s the case with some more artists…

    Wonderful work with a sad expression at the same time!

  • Well, sad is one of the strongest emotions, which touches you deep inside… me, at least.
    I mean, there is no contradiction, lots of art is sad, isn’t it?
