Artist's description:

The old saying "like a moth to a flame" defines someone with self-destructive attraction; where their navigation minds are diverted by underlying motivation for greed, lust or the thrill of the chase. They take suicide mission towards illusion of artificial lights as they are confused the difference between heavenly lights and fires of hell. Artificial lights may appear brighter and closer than the stars but the superficial masses (such as oppressed minorities, friends playing favorites, hypocrites, materialistic celebrities, conceited wealthy people, resistance organizations or activists) tend to blindly follow others of their kind to “fit in” to the nearest artificial light than to go beyond reach for authentic light, the heavenly stars. At the end, they all get scorched by fires of hell.

Materials used:

Giclée print with Canon Lucia pigment ink on acid-free Canson Infinity or Hahnemühle fine art paper
