Soul Plexus
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 15x19 in

  • Lovers, interlaced into a shell helix, are a symbol of life.
  • Wings are traditionally regarded as a symbol of elation, a break from the mundane.

Lovers' souls soar up for an instant above the sea and the lights of a town. It is a precious moment when a sense of intimacy and spiritual unity between a man and a woman uplifts the soul and it breaks free from the world. Looking at this painting may remind you of the phrase from "Winter Night" in Boris Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago, "crossed hands, crossed feet, crossed fate."
