Fear of mind's censorship - Paura della censura della mente

Censorship is terrible, takes away or puts limits to any form of expression.The idea that our mind is not subject to censorship  is normal and comfortable - I think with my head and nobody can stop me from thinking about what I want, because no one can read in my mind...
Well, unfortunately I see more and more that our thought, our mind, our soul, is subject to censorship, this form of censorship is not declared, but insidious, slowly creeping into the mind, focusing on young, the current system is trying to make sure that we do not use more our heads.

If this thing will goes on, we will be not any more, we will lose everything, we will not know more about us

In this my painting there is a person who has been deprived of the ability to think, lost in this way also his history  and no longer know who is.




The Censorship painted from Laura Tedeschi


La censura é terribile, toglie o mette un limite a qualsiasi forma di espressione.
È normale e confortabile l'idea che il pensiero non é soggetto a censura - io penso con la mia testa e nessuno puó impedirmi di pensare quello che voglio, perché nessuno puó leggere nel mio cervello...
Bene mi accorgo sempre piú che purtroppo il pensiero é soggetto a questa forma di censura, non é una censura ostentata, ma subdola, piano piano si insinua nella mente, puntando sui giovanissimi, l'attuale sistema sta cercando di fare in modo che noi non usiamo piú la nostra testa.


Se questa cosa andrá avanti noi saremo privati di tutto, non saremo piú nessuno.


Questo mio quadro rappresenta una persona a cui é stata tolta la capacitá di pensare, ha perso in questo modo anche la sua storia e non sa piú chi é.

I don't see much censorship here, Laura, but I sure think this is one powerful image and surely sends an important message! Well done!

Caio Fernandes said...

Laura , today in this Global world we are living the worse and most sofisticated kind of dictatorship and censorship: the one that makes people don't realise or don't feel any censorship.
people feel free to talk and show what they want , but they are learn to want to talk only what is convenient to the governments and big corporations .

wonderful post.
I liked this painting a lot .

Woman in a Window said...

Incredibly strong, Laura. Uncompromisingly honest. The machine is so very heavy, but youth always surprises me. There is a nature to young people, it seems to me even today, that rises above the grinding nature of the machine that subdues thought. It is actually the older generation that I am surprised by, all hooked up to computers, the internet and cell phones, a leaking messy feeling of self importance about them. People our age and older. How is it that they/we forget the nature of the machine, the objective of purchase for distraction? I am ashamed to see so many of us older wiser people not thinking. And yes, the younger ones are underneath us, but time and time again I am surprised by a nature that rises above. It is on the one hand frightening that they might fall under, and on the other reassuring that it is instinctual to rise above.

Fingers crossed.

Keep provoking.

E' vero Lura ed è molto triste, viviamo in un sistema di comunicazione che "orienta" le opinioni, instupidisce la gente, colpisce al cuore il libero pensiero. E' una censura che non usa più gli strumenti del passato, è molto più subdola perchè ci fa credere di vivere in un regime di libertà, mentre corrompe la società.

Der Vergleich mit dem guten alten Pablo ist schon mehr als treffend. Ein tolles Werk hast Du da geschaffen!

Tito said...

Laura, direi che il tuo dipinto è drammaticamente efficace nel denunciare il rischio che le nostre menti, ma soprattutto quelle delle nuove generazioni, possano venire plagiate ed omologate per scopi tutt'altro che nobili!! Un abbraccio!

Two Tigers said...

Sad and true. The worst kind of censorship comes from inside when people forget how or just don't want to think for themselves, AS themselves, at which point what do all their freedoms mean if they take their own voices away? Such a strong subject to portray, and a beautiful work, Laura!

Willy. said...

Hoi Laura,
Very worrying subject in nice colors!!
Do not forget, the injustices within our own circles,to complain!
This message can help. Grtngs, Willy.

carlos diez said...

Estupendo Laura, un tema difícil y cada vez más actual. La censura está en todos los sitios y lo peor en cuando la censura nos la ponemos nosotros mismos. La pintura muy impactante. Un abrazo

Inkpunk Artworks said...

Laura,

Powerful and compelling! I love the colors and the depth as well.

I think artist are on the forefront of expression of free thought, and we must do whatever we can to make sure that our freedoms remain that way.

Great post!

Have a great week,
Brian

Woman in a Window

yes, you are so right too, it is true, the way we "old" generation is subject to all these things is really sad, is perhaps a signal that we failed? Who knows ... is very sad for humanity, it is so true...
My faith in young never-ending, I watch them always proud when I see students demonstrating, my blood beginn to boild , I admire them, it seems that we old and poor workers do not have the strength anymore to demostrate...
my fear is exately for this motivo for the jung people...

Words of truth, a reminder and warning; painting of depth and power. Thank you, Laura.

Hay que intentar olvidarse de la censura y pelear contra ella de la mejor forma, con arte, como esta bella obra que nos presentas.
Saludos Laura

Anthony Duce said...

I love the painting and what it expresses. I think as artists we each practice our form of censorship. It’s part of the process of determining how much we are willing to show of ourselves in our work, and how much we leave to the viewers interpretation. There is a price to pay depending on the viewer, and I guess there will always be those who want to control how much they think we should be able to express.

MAITE RUBERT said...

Alguien dijo que ," el Arte, es la estancia más libre del alma". yo comparto esta idea porque, a través de la expresión artitística, se pueden decir muchas cosas sutilmente.
Tu pintura es de lo más expresivo de tu obra.
Grazie, Laura.

Olivia said...

Laura, la tua pittura traduce tutto l'orrore della censura. Il viso è chiuso talmente che non sembra esistere più. Sai mostrarcelo coi tuoi pennelli. Applauso!

Harry Kent said...

what a powerful image, Laura! And what you say is soooo true.

Artscapes said...

Laura, Such strong image. An unexamined truth is no truth at all. I agree with Caio censorship and thought control has become seamless, we don't recognize it so we accept it until we become as your painting suggests stagnated and thoughtless.
Beautiful and horrifying painting.

Lucia B. said...

Non si può rimanere indifferenti di fronte a questo dipinto, esprime in modo quasi violento quello che intendi comunicare a proposito della censura e della mancanza di libertà che spesso ci ritroviamo a subire inconsapevoli.

Massimo said...

Giusto !!!
grazie per la visita dalle mie parti e un caro saluto

bondearte said...

Ciao Laura cara amica!
tue dipinto è fantastico, stupendo, fortissimo!
Laura, sono sicuro che i giovani no
ha la coscienza di quanto sono censurati.
Non si rendono conto che la grande stampa mondiale
costruisce idoli, produce idee, standardizza il modo di capi di abbigliamento dei giovani nel mondo,e, infine, impone la dittatura del comportamento standardizzato,
mette in ridicolo e censurare tutti coloro che agiscono o pensano diversamente da standard.
Congratulazione per tue lavoro,
Abbraccione
Paulo

spottedwolf said...

Laura,

This fear is one which comes again and again as this old world re-evolves through its cycles and phases. Be troubled if you must...but not for the world....for nature 'rises' even as she 'falls'....and what seems looming in one spate of existance....is ending in another.

Ciao Manolo! È vero quello che dici...

Alberto Oliver said...

Censorship,but as you state, maybe it is even worse the self censorship exerted by the fear to be rejected from the mainstream, to be criticized and have no argument to defend our believes. Systems have been always delighted in trying to take away everything what make people to be human, included their free will and freedom of expression. That is a quite wonderful painting Laura, and a very strong one. A man without the chance to express, is a man with a mutilated soul, a mutilated life.
What a good job you have made here.

Elvi said...

Il mio lavoro si svolge con i giovani
e non sai quanto è vero quello che dici. Tutto questo è estremamente
pericoloso e difficile da combattere.
Elvi

I love your response, as you say, " A man without the chance to express, is a man with a mutilated soul, a mutilated life" is so true...

thank you very much

nouvelles couleurs - vienna atelier said...

Elvi

sí é molto pericoloso, sai molti adulti non ci fanno caso oppure non si rendono conto di come sono manipolati dai vari media i giovani, non tutti per fortuna, credo che sitia in noi adulti insegnare ai nostri ragazzi di ragionare con la propria testa e di non guardare le mode, di guardare il valore della persona e non il valore dei jeans che indossa...
che tristezza

Grazie Elvira

Bravo Laura, tus pintas realidades incomodas para algunas personas, pero eres valiente al reflejarlo con tu sello personal y expresionista. Saludos

Andrew Finnie said...

Hello Laura, to lose our mouth is something we seldom think about, yet in a way it as disturbing as losing our eyes.

For me, censorship is a thing that protects other people from myself.

:)

Another way of thinking of it.

However it is not so with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2. 5 million plus Samsung Mobile USA Facebook fans and 3 million Samsung Mobile US Twitter followers to participate in the celebration, including an exclusive
