Description:

This large-scale work was inspired by the importance of the water element and its ability to purify bodies.


Technique: This work was done with the canvas on the floor with a very diluted acrylic paint which gives watercolor-like effects. Different layers of transparent colors give an impression of depth to the canvas. The artist also projected the paint to evoke the splash on the dark rock. A great force, movement and vital energy emerge from this canvas.

SYMBOLIC OF WATER

There is certainly no element that is as rich in symbolism as water, closely linked to birth and regeneration; its purity and transparency blur stains and give a new youth to individuals and objects. If it is the element of purification and protection par excellence, it is also the basic drink essential to life. Water can be a fountain, spring, river, river, torrent, sea ... It can give birth and can swallow; it refreshes, but it can also suffocate. It evokes death as well as life, destruction as well as renewal, purification and sanctification.
