The painting comprises two canvas panels joined to create a unified visual narrative encompassing both the back and front sides of the canvas stretcher. It serves as a dual narrative—a back story and a front story.
On the backside, dried flower reeds are painted alongside a three-dimensional representation of a pacifier. Conversely, the front side portrays an abandoned pacifier lying on the ground, with an obscured shoe print above it, trampling flowers—a blooming depiction reminiscent of the dried ones featured on the right side of the panel.
This artwork was created in response to the tragic events that occurred on October 7, 2023— the murder of 1400 individuals in Israel and the kidnapping of 240 Israelis, encompassing Jews, Muslims, citizens, and dual nationals from over 20 countries. The title of the work is not subtle, deliberately reflecting my artistic response to these harrowing events.
Moving forward, the interpretation and emotional resonance of this piece now lie within the domain of the viewers. While I keep control over the title, the artwork's impact and message are subject to individual perception and contemplation.
It’s now in the domain of the viewers. I can only control the title.
