“Envy” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Painting
Dimensions: 120 cm x 150 cm
Technique: Chalk, natural pigments, oil painting and acrylic on canvas
Set at sunset, “Envy” is depicted with many flying eyes and golden wings.
The eyes were changing colors. The iris is similar to human eyes, but with no pupils. This means that the eyes of those who envy are not natural eyes, we just need to observe them well.
The sail is torn, as if to signify that the boat has made a long journey and it is now exhausted to navigate. The sky (figurative representation of the world) is so full of envy.
Just wait and go straight, how it does sailing. The condition of envy is, however, to end up drowned in water.
