The Art of Zarum
GENERAL BODY OF WORK
Title: Spanish Dream Medium: Acrylic on Canvas Size: 146cm X 114cm
Spanish Dream: In a dream I saw the fire of the Flamenco, the Fire of the Women, and the fire of the Gitanos (the gypsies). That is why the use of red as the main color of the work. The Central figure of the naked woman in black and white is the hot and cold posture of the Spanish woman. The image of the woman with her eyes closed represents both shyness and some of the old values which remain. The “sail” as many have called it in the middle of the painiting is actully a film strip representing the feeling I sometimes have of being in Spain of “make belive”, of being in a dream. A dream within a dream.
