About "In a State of Mental Bondage 3/3"

This portrait covers the third mental abuse known as male abuse on women in the form of rape or physical abuse. It results in a form of mental abuse that leaves women in a mental fear from true freedom.

A while back, I felt the need to speak up against mental abuse of women. Being a male, this hasn't had a direct effect on me, but I had to see the effect of this on my female friends. Men should start to stand up against this. Not being married yet, I would like to believe that my future wife is well protected against this. As a male, you're not just abusing a woman, but someone's future wife. How would you like your future wife to be treated?

Symbolism:
The red tie symbolises the mental bondage of women through the symbol of male dominance and power.

About Jacques

Jacques Steyn

Born in Paarl, Western Cape and grew up in Ceres, I had the privilege of having a childhood in the countryside. Art was since the age of 6 big factor in my life, and I started sketching realistic portraits since the age of 9. I was professionally trained during my school years and started selling paintings from the age of 14. I ended up studying Architecture at the University of the Free State where my perspective in life completely got thrown into a new direction. My rebirth in art came when I moved to Cape Town after my studies to pursue my career as an architect and part-time artist.

I'm an artist inspired by the social circumstances of the modern age. Through the form of portraits, I tell the stories and struggles of our generation. I find a big interest in understanding culture, and find myself expressing that discoveries through the form of art.

I paint primarily in oil but am always experimenting with watercolors and pencil on the side. Most of the oil paintings for sale have gone through a series of layers to enhance the final color palette and to give the painting a form of depth that can't be captured through a camera.
