Soldier: Ready For War by Medusa

I once knew a sweet and sensitive boy who was afraid, so he joined the army to become a brave… They tried to crush his spirit but instead he became a killing machine… Six years later he left the army and set about destroying the enemy… The heart and soul of every woman to cross his path…

Oil Painting

Abstract Surrealism

54 × 89

Soldier Blue, I loved you…

The concepts behind this work explores deeper aspects of the human psyche in relation to youth and the armed forces…
Furthermore it examines the human psyche of every individual…
The internal war, the external war…
Every single day is a battle… Consider…
We are all soldiers…

    An amazing abstract Medusa…It’s a very challenging piece that, for me, conjures up the internal dialogue within us all and how that voice externalises itself…your use of colour, i feel, expresses the battles within so beautifully and emotively.

    You have captured so much in the eyes, I almost expect them to blink, any moment now…

    Stunning work Medusa…may you continue to articulate so passionately with your Art!!!

    If you look into the soul of a soldier you will see his heaving eddy of violent swirling water..from that what he knows he has lost…never find..never become…for his desire to love a woman he will never understand… for he is like your pieces…MS

  • Dearest Mudsoldat,
    Your profound and thought-provoking words have reached me as a reminder of the fragility of life and human spirit… And that as human beings it is so important to love, honour and respect life and those we meet on our journey…
    Thankyou so much for your wonderful comments…
    I’m afraid they have brought strong emotions to the fore, of A Love Misunderstood and Lost… A Beautiful Friendship in Pieces…And the Void that is left… Still, I appreciate your wisdom… Thankyou…

    deep, significant, a sign for all times……….very moving, gallo

  • Thankyou Dear Gallo, it truly means a lot to me that this particular painting resonates with you my friend… And you are right… War is all around us… We cannot escape it… From the beginning of time…Chaos… Will there ever be Peace on Earth… I wonder…?
    I gravely doubt it… But hope springs eternal…
