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.
