Voyager
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 25x33 in

  • This is part of the voyage metaphors series.
  • This painting compares human life with a journey that begins in childhood.
  • Wind is, perhaps, the most significant of the artist's voyage paintings.
  • Imagine the man in the painting as once on this same road going to school, carrying his backpack. Later he is driving and flying on business to far-away cities.

A suitcase or a traveling bag is the key element of the painting, representing the landmarks of man's wanderings. Later it is replaced by a laptop containing job-related data, such as project proposals or budget projections.

The path is not straight but winding, symbolically depicted in the painting by the S-shaped line of the road. It is marked with creative symbols like the houses that appear in places he will pass on his journey.
