Secrets and Confession 2 by alexandramanukyan Secrets and Confession 2 by alexandramanukyan
16"x20" oil on canvas, Alexandra Manukyan

Equal parts sinner and saint she has known both mankind's highest ideals and basest scorn. He gazes upon his confessor in search of absolution knowing that true salvation lies not with Heaven's mercy but with a kindred acceptance of his secrets and failings from someone who has also fallen from grace time and again.

but what could one of honest heart and wicked views take one of fallen grace? Could another fallen really understand? Or is just that the fallen has chosen to understand the world seen through her own gaze, through her own her crimson stained glass? The future is seen through many minds, but how do you find the right mind, the right future?

incredible!!! Wow your description of this painting is so spot on- i just also realized that is a huge part of all my friendships- true salvation lies not with heaven's mercy but with a kindred acceptance of secrets and failings from someone who has also fallen from grace time and again.  word!

I can't have enough of your work, the old world feeling of oil on canvas, yet the contemporary twist, and the play between the shadows/light, and a strong statement!!
Amazingly talented..I simply adore every single piece!! :heart: Striking..surreal, and thought provoking!!
