Miners by Nedim Gunsur

miners by nedim gunsur, oil on plywood
Black gold, as it is called around here. Many a tragedy have taken place in the coal mines. Hundreds of feet below the surface, eyes closed, never to see again; leaving their loved ones also as victims.

I have a particular bias towards this oil on plywood by Nedim Gunsur (1924-1994), the miners. Simple, bold and striking colors. Despiration, helplessness, sorrow...

I have no idea how it manages to move me; but it just does that, and that's what art is all about.

Dimensions: 47x42 cm
Estimated value: $10,000
