About the Artwork:
"In "Navigating Emotion," from the Soul Vibrations Art Series, I sought to capture the tumultuous journey through the emotional landscape of the human spirit. This abstract art piece is a visual representation of the complex and often unpredictable pathways our feelings take us on. The vibrant blues and stark whites intermingle with the sudden bursts of color, symbolizing the waves of joy, sorrow, passion, and tranquility that can sweep through us without warning.
The movement within the painting reflects the ebb and flow of our innermost emotions – how they can be chaotic, yet possess a rhythm and direction that guide us through life's challenges. The abstract forms and splashes across the canvas were inspired by the fluidity of water, a metaphor for how emotions can carry us away, often taking us to unexpected places.
This painting, 'Navigating Emotion,' is a voyage into the depths of the psyche. It was born from a period of deep introspection and a desire to understand the forces that drive us. Just as a ship navigates through stormy seas, we must steer through our emotional waters, learning to ride the waves and find our course. This artwork is a map of the heart, charting the ebbs and flows that make us who we are."
The painting was created with oil paints on a uniquely textured composite aluminum panel.
Thanks to the use of spacers, the artwork “floats” on the wall in an aura of beautiful light, made possible by the app-controlled LED backlighting.
“The 'Soul Vibrations' series demonstrates Manaylo's engagement with his subject matter, where he, as an artist, becomes a part of his work, his soul intertwined with each stroke of the brush, each application of color and texture. Van Gogh once said, "I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process," and it is this sentiment that seems to resonate with Manaylo's approach. His free, spontaneous, and personal emotional experience is poured onto the canvas, which unlike his previous series, abandons the structured composition and replaces it with a unified, fluid field of emotional intensity.”
