39.4x39.4x1.2 in ~ Painting, Acrylic, Airbrush, Ink, Digital Print, Photo Montage
This painting is about Portuguese discoveries, about the greatness of those ancient times, the glow of caravels and the bravery of the discoverers.
We can see quotes from Lusíadas "On the seas never before navigated," a reference to the conquests in Africa and a note of the cross of Christ's order.
The romanticized memory of other times is evoked wrapped in hearts and roses by a totally decontextualized person, Audrey Hepburn, American actress.
This choice was random in some way , the image's ambiguity is used to focus the attention.
Painting, mixed media on canvas with UV print.
Done on gallery wrapped canvas, with no need for framing, as the edges are painted, ready to hang.
I sign my paintings on the back, but I can sign them also on the front, at request. This painting includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
