In "Cupid Riding a Rooster," Lilit Soghomonyan captures a whimsical narrative with a deeply evocative and sensuous approach that defines much of her contemporary, figurative work. The oil on canvas measuring 20 x 24 inches, painted in 2017, is a testament to Soghomonyan’s ability to convey movement and emotion through bold, impasto strokes and a restrained color palette.
The central figure, Cupid, is abstracted to its essence. Soghomonyan plays with the mythological subject’s traditional imagery, placing the god of desire atop a rooster, a symbol of watchfulness and the heralding of new beginnings. The blending of these motifs invites a contemplation of the dualities of love: the vigilance it demands and the dawn it promises.
The color scheme is dominated by soft pinks and bold reds, encapsulating the fervor of love and the innocence of its mythological messenger. Soghomonyan's use of light and shadow, achieved through the varying thickness of paint, gives the artwork a palpable texture that echoes the turbulence of the emotions involved.
"Cupid Riding a Rooster" is more than a painting; it is a statement. Soghomonyan's strokes are deliberate, yet they flow with a freedom that suggests she is guided by the very passions she portrays. This piece stands as a striking exploration of myth through the lens of modernity, challenging the viewer to find contemporary relevance in ancient tales. It is a bold reimagining of Cupid's symbolism, liberated from the shackles of tradition and vividly alive in the modern psyche.
