“The Burning” is a very simple yet very symbolic painting by Sergey Melnik. The messages the painting passes across are antithetical to one other. It is evident from *“The Burning”* that Melnik is not just an ordinary artist. His motivation for artwork is exceptional and edifying. He is an extraordinary artist that gets motivation from his dreams and paints immediately he wakes up. His artworks are out of this world. On the bright part, the painting illustrates the illumination of a dark room by a burning candle. The beam brightens the room and It represents life, vibrancy, and vitality.
Upon a cursory look, one can see a sad man beneath the candle whose light is already burning out. He is running out of time, he has got no other option than to keep burning. It tells a story about life. It keeps on burning till it burns out. The painting is so touching and very significant. It reflects a lifetime, from early life to getting old. The painting also exemplifies time. Just like the burning candle, time keeps on running.
*“The Burning”* is a motivational piece of art and having this painting hanging around you, will boost your zeal, purpose, and determination. No one will be left untouched.
