Thoughts - Head Over All

Head Over All, acryl on canvas, 50x50 cm, 2011

You may know it. Sometimes we're overwhelmed by our thoughts. Yet thoughts are just thoughts! It will be OK again. And then it will be not OK again... :-) I painted that state of mind in "Head Over All".

I have found the english title of this artwork to be puzzling and confusing. In Czech it is "Hlava přes celé" which means that sometimes our mind is in a state when the head (thoughts) is covering all the plain of the canvas = all the copnsciousness. In a simple straight translation to english it sounds like I mean "head rules everything" or "head stands over all things" which is definitely NOT what I wanted to express. Sorry for my weak translation. It may happen in more cases.
