HUMAN NATURE by LEONALEGRIA HUMAN NATURE by LEONALEGRIA
Acrylic, Oil, Wood, Metal, Electronics
Diptich panels
12' x 6' each panel

This piece was designed for a bank's lobby 15 years ago. I attempted to represent in a symbolical way all the aspects inherent to humanity.

The left panel depicts self-destruction, viruses, insanity, war, prostitution, slavery, fears, death, and other desperate conditions.

The right panel depicts love, art, music, the fountain of life, intelligence, freedom, abundance, laboriousness, fecundity, hope, and similar positive facets.

The diptich contains sounds when the music instrument is played, some LED effects, and some parts have movement.

This is a MASTERPIECE !For prestigious exhibition!I see the Biblical story that is not a fairy tale.At right is the TREE OF LIFE and its fruit good.And on the left of the consequences of other tree fruits.
Concept is a philosophical and spiritual.

This is a very clever concept, that has been put together so precisely with such detail also. I like how you have shown the contrast.

This is absolutely wonderful. I wish I could see it in real life so I could examine all the details! It's huge! I can see a lot of thought has gone into the concepts as well. Lots of elements of it strike me as very Hieronymus Bosch. :)

I think the panels on their own are amazing for the artwork, but I would be interested in seeing them move. The electronics aspect add another impressive dimension to this peice.

masterful you have crossed into a new level of work on this one. Though the others had an elegant quality to them these seem to live and breath and evoke the great allegorical works of the middle ages. Amazing stuff truly.
