In these two moorings all the tension is in the middle part, in the strong movements of the ropes and in the chromatic contrasts between the wood of the poles and the water. From the center, the tension descends downward, sinking downward as if it is an abyss. It is a dramatic picture, and the presence of the colour purple goes well with this feeling. I can’t say that I enjoy it when I paint dramatic pictures, but I think that if there isn’t this, art is less consistent. Even in the drama, these moorings appear solid, because they are very structured and united. I feel them particularly close, because they remind me of moments when some people helped me with their small but precious suggestions, especially when I was just starting out. The balance and stability of my being an artist were built from these small and precious suggestions, which are like the strings of this painting. Happy Monday and good week everyone!
