“The sea inside of me is so!”
Whether we like it or not, the sea is everywhere. Clippings from the sea flood the entire coast. Sea penetrated beyond the stone buildings and surrounded the city from all directions. The meaning of the painting is that that the sea wants to conquer the land.
The green color of the painting
Someday, this beach will sink into the water, and the picture will be uniformly green. The archaeologists of the future will to rip off her layers of paint, trying to find traces of the ancient sunken civilization. This process is already happening, we are gradually immerse ourselves into the water.
Think about the fact that it is not landscape, but the real picture of what happens to people. You have to be very insightful artist to observe this process. It is impossible to do without the images. The sea is just an image. Such a gentle, pleasant and green sea! And so cruelly erodes our human nature!
The yellow color of the painting
I have a feeling that the yellow color is the scraped green. Something is trying to free the picture of the green. What is it?
It is light. You see how the oblique rays of light, so to speak, attack the sea. Light is fighting with the sea for the land. Light is trying to save our human reality of the coming flood.
What distinguishes the land from the sea?
Only one thing, there is light on the land, and this light may something to change. But nothing could be changed on the space occupied by the sea.
In short, the picture shows the interaction of three elements: of the sea, land and sunlight. Light is creativity. This light is trying to win back the land from the sea. Fighting yellow with green.
