abstract expressionist multicolor painting

When I still needed you

Arturo Laime .  2014

Full of force and colour, this painting was made using knives and my naked hands. I dropped painting on the canvas and started to scratch the surface to create three dimensional strokes. The title is inspired by a song of one of my favorite music groups Afro Celt Sound System. I looked back to the time when someone touched my life, and my path was shown. This piece talks about desire, lust, faith and to look back for a dream that seems to be gone.
