At the center of Van Gogh's art

Vincent van Gogh painting sunflowers by Paul Gauguin, 1888

It's been a couple of months now since I've seen Loving Vincent, and even though I was mesmerized by the stunning oil paint animation and exceptional creativity poured into the production, I was a bit disappointed with how the film had turned out emulating a detective story. Or maybe it's just me asking more of Vincent Van Gogh, the person, who I've entirely missed out of this biographical homage. What ails him? Who fulfills him? What perches at the core of his universe? It's a needle in a haystack.

Nevertheless, digital tools may be the key to unearthing our beloved artist's persona, ironically. Who knows? The soul that has breathed within his art throughout the centuries has yet remained a mystery. Well, I guess we'll continue to crack the code, the symbols and myths behind these artists' life's work, even if it means probing the darkest alleyways of their brush strokes.
