“Cold Hands Looking for Light and Warmth”
shows x-rays of the skeleton of cold hands in the adverse conditions of the freezing winter among naked branches of the trees in a field of snow. The nighttime scene with a full moon adds a mysterious and eerie ambience . The art piece expresses a desperation of a group of people when all are suffering to find some light and warmth. The moon gives them hope. Extending many hands that are chilled to the bone in an upward and open and pleading position brings a special empathy the power of many suffering the same fate.
The foreground is shaded and dark and as the moon rises on the horizon, light emerges and is projected into the future.
With the winter season there are many who will be suffering from the cold.
The moon is not going to provide much warmth nor light , but a glimmer of hope exists, albeit small.
The art piece has a surreal sense, since the x-rays are taken out of context and put into snow white fields. The hands have been brought together to look like a tree.
