In “War Doctor,” Nya’ minimally portrays a valiant warrior triumphantly returning from a fierce battle. However, instead of glowing in vanity, broadcast his exploits and peruse his prowess, the warrior resides at the altar of thanksgiving, offering tribute and heartfelt hymns of eulogy.
Transformed into a visage that resembles a budding fetus nursed in the womb, and with a river of tears trickling down the walls of his countenance as he considers the countless fatal blows that escaped his mortal heart, his earnest gratitude and utmost reverence is rewarded, greatness is bestowed upon him and his name is eternally engraved in the Word of Life.
Nya’s use of symmetry, line, a monochromatic palette, and very distinct shapes, all sporadically and sparingly applied, leaving only a trace, a hint, and a distant memory of the subject matter creates an ingress and compels the viewer into deep contemplation, achieving what he calls “a pensive sojourn.”
