Desert and Sky, 100x80, 2008
The Sinbad voyages are a series of paintings inspired by the daring sailor of the Arabian Nights. Sinbad plows the oceans and lands in unknown and surprising countries, meets every kind of danger, faces absurd and paradoxical situations. He is always able to return to his city, Baghdad, from which he promises to never leave again, to enjoy the wealth accumulated in his adventures. But, after some time spent in comfort, he can’t resist the desire to return to the sea. The artist imagines Sinbad crossing a boundless desert under a shining sky. Some elements, like stars and cities, are made in collage. They do not come from external sources but are all designed by him, cut out and incorporated into the acrylic medium. The work is mounted on a wooden frame and signed on the back.
