Lexis, Thumos = The language of souls = emotions
Each artwork represents an emotion. This project represents my subjective vision regarding emotions and how we are thought since we are little to repress them. This project encourages emotions to be expressed freely.
You’re a marble man, a woman made of stone.
The sickness of humanity: “Feeling how to not feel”.
“Happy, happy” slaves, your emotions are thunderstorms,
Forces of your nature which you cannot, but must control;
You’ve got left only with numb words in your mouth
The language you speak, has lost it’s meaning
Shadows haunting your mind
What are words, without emotions behind?
You fight your inner demons, but you left them unfed
When you do not live your emotions,
You starve yourself to death.
But permanent are, within the living manInternal urges, cravings and desires
Trained to repress the wilderness of the soul;
It’s not the soul that’s wild, it’s the mind that’s locked.
You consume and you abuse, external,
Compensation of the chained internal.
The spiritedness, the breath of life
The psyche, burdened by the desire to be recognized
The soul, empty in this cloth of blood and flesh.
Feelings repressed and thoughts humongous,
Another form of manipulation is, shutting down the core.
