Moods always reflect our inner-feelings as a mirror. The French word “Humuers” beautifully describes this phenomenon. Moods of many modern individuals are gloomy because of the frustrated capitalism of our contemporary society. It’s always creating nonrealistic targets and those targets ultimately create dissatisfaction which is leading us to follow up with superstition and metaphysics. It directs us not to get rid from this material calamity but to gather many unlimited hopes about material values. This as well continues the wicked process of contemporary Sri Lankan’s political influence and economical system fueling dissatisfaction. The worst-case scenario is there dissatisfied feelings change our moods to discontent. Therefore, I attempt to reveal this hidden political and economic crisis and try to make an awareness about it by visualizing those “Humuers” in my compositions.
