Abstract Oil Painting

"Tears by Moonlight" is a poignant commentary on the dual nature of storytelling in African culture. This abstract oil painting on canvas draws inspiration from the cherished tradition of "tales by moonlight," where elders captivate young listeners with colorful folk tales under the moonlit sky. However, beneath the surface of nostalgia lies a darker reality. The canvas depicts an elderly figure seated under the glowing moon, surrounded by eager children, their faces illuminated by the moon's gentle light. Yet, the scene is not one of innocent storytelling but of deception and disillusionment. The stories told are not just myths and legends but also veiled lies and empty promises, symbolizing the deceitful narratives perpetuated by political leaders. Amidst the enchanting tales, subtle hints of corruption and bad governance emerge.

The brushstrokes convey a sense of unease, with swirling patterns representing the chaos and confusion that ensue when truth is obscured by falsehoods. The colors shift from warm, inviting tones to darker hues, reflecting the sinister undercurrents lurking beneath the surface. "Tears by Moonlight" serves as a powerful indictment of corruption and inequality, particularly prevalent in modern-day Africa. It challenges viewers to confront the harsh realities faced by many, where the masses suffer while those in power exploit their trust and resources. Through this evocative artwork, the artist calls for greater accountability and transparency, urging society to shed tears under the same moonlight that once inspired dreams and stories of hope.
