A glove, 2024

120 x 140 cm

oil on canvas, wood frame painted with acrylics

This art piece is one of the 20 paintings that I created for the interior of elderly home: based on my research blue, green and violet colors has the most positive impact for people with dementia. Since in my chosen institution most of people have dementia I created a collection of paintings that would not only brighten the mood of seniors that live in elderly home, but also make a healthy and positive impact on their mental health. I volounteered, wrote a diary on how I feel while being in there, wrote stories that I heard from seniors and used my texts to create fun compositions for canvas. Volounteering I realised that a lot of seniors remember their dances from youth and feel nostalgic. That’s why I chose the topic of dance for this series of paintings. As an contemporary painter tried to combine seniors stories with my interpretations. “A glove” is a representation of how a dance could start. You take another persons hand and then…the magic happens. Originally I made a sketch of a tree. I wanted to express dance and movement through nature, but starting to paint I chose the color green-and realised it could be interpreted both ways: some of the viewer will see a body part, another one-a tree. Colors green and blue combined are chosen for the best mental effect on seniors with dementia.
