We are dancing in our chains

By AquaSixio
9K Favourites


We yell « NO ! » or use drugs to escape reality, but we still dance in our chains. 
We can try to break them, in a pointless effort, to realize we won’t be really free.
We stand the pace, we carry our story and scuff our feet in the sand of the past.
We tame our inner demons, in a dance routine, until we learn to live with them. 

Inspired from the quote from Nietzsche : " We dance in our chains " - " La liberté c'est savoir danser avec ses chaînes "

Time : 12h00 hours
Software : Photoshop CC

I wanted to comment on your illustration. But if I had to write comments in all the ones I like, I would look like a stolker :).
Your works are color poems.

well I suppose chains are virtually everywhere I thought about it too when I think of my id - tags always on the belt like all or many workslaves these days everywhere: meantime i even wear identity chain on wrist with name etc. on it looks and feels quite cool and you may even end up with a dogtag round your neck except that u get used to it all  - which I suppose is better for me !

Nobody is free, the chains represent our imprisonment. We are modern slaves with invisible chains and we find a semblance of freedom in art.

Hello your pictures are really very beautiful and special they are a strong source of inspiration for me as a fantasy writer. I'm looking for material for the realization of a book trailer and I was wondering if you could download it and use it in my video. Waiting for comparison, I wish you all the best. Francis.

Amazing! The colors are so phenomenal. This reminds me of "Harrison Bergeron."
