Melancholy by Albert György 

Quite often you can agonize over a painting’s meaning, either directly or through the use of metaphor.

However, with this sculpture by Albert György, a Romanian-born sculptor, who resides in Switzerland, there is no subtle interpretation to be gleaned from this.

For anyone who has ever felt the loneliness of a 100 rooms, or the weariness when you’ve lost the battle; for anyone who is so bereft that they feel like an empty shell or to those who found themselves dissolving over the loss of something so precious; György is speaking to you for he knows exactly how that feels.

This piece can be found on the shores of Lake Geneva.
