In this painting I have attempted to show the ferocity and violence of human nature, when the loss of self control unleashes anger. The painting obviously is not naturalistic, which I feel helps to better express the undesirability of the mindless aggression.
The figure representing the peacemaker is female. Notice too that ‘her’ hands are attempting to close the source of their expression of violence through their mouths.
Thankfully she has great skill in doing so, – in that – she is smiling whilst assuaging their rage.
