An outline shape of a woman who is composed of clouds and sky emerges out of a deep green forest. Anyone familiar with the work of the Belgian surrealist master, Rene Magritte, will probably recognize the outline shape motif that the artist used in this painting. Magritte did quite a few paintings featuring such an outline of a man or a bird, filled with sky. The artist has always been intrigued by this concept and decided to give it a try, creating his own, unique treatment. He has done multiple paintings involving the forest and woods and always love the challenge of trying to create a realistic forest setting. The stark imagery of the woman emerging from the forest provides a dramatic juxtaposition and to me creates a sort of symbolic image of a woman confidently emerging and the visual of the clouds and sky within the shape of the woman is a reminder that we are all sky - a part of something bigger that none of us can truly comprehend.
