Above the Dam is a study in contrasts. I was drawn to the stony granite and calm water with its lily pads. A lovely landscape, but the underlying subject is really time: a comparison of that which endures and that which is fleeting. It is also about the pace of time’s passing: the trees and shrubs speak of decades, the water lilies days, the granite millions of years. A good painting, to me, is one filled with subtexts and metaphors. It is lovely to see and promotes reflection and thought. Enjoy!
So beautiful!!! Cheers Nonoy Manga
This is great! It has a surreal quality like the vivid images that one has in dreams… beyond the shackles of conventional raelity.
Thank you Gregorio! I’ve been trying to tap into my unconscious, along with old memories, for these newer paintings. Sometimes even I’m surprised by what happens.
