Magenta: Battle of Magenta
Magenta is a beautiful pinkish color, but color of blood-stained red can also be seen, if observed from a different perspective. Like the etymology of the name given to commemorate the victory in the battle of Magenta (a city in Italy), which resulted in thousands of fatalities, to the artist, magenta feels like a color of sacrifice that had to be made for a beautiful peace. Sacrifice for peace is so awe-inspiring and beautiful. But if that sacrifice must be made by your family, would it still feel the same way?
