The painting depicts the half body portrait of a man dressed in a striped shirt. he's looking in front of him, beyond the left side of the canvas. Behind him, on the background, there 's the landscape of a wood under a starry sky, that is reflecting in so
The painting is inspired by the character and the life of Vincent van Gogh. The idea started as a kind of a joke, due to certain kind of similarities between the artist and one of my mates here at GLO'ART.
Then I decided to portray him as a man who looks lost in a wood ( or a park as the bench can hint ), under a night sky that want to be a quote to the famous Van Gogh painting.
The work has different kind of representation : the face of the subject is painted is painted with oil color in a figurative way, that contrasts with the flat acrylic colors of the background. The stars, depicted just with a collage of hole reinforce stickers, show their real aspect just in the reflection of the puddle, like a revelation from a magic mirror.
This painting is complementary to the other work I realized for GLO'ART ( the night crawler) creating a kind of diptych : diurnal and noctural. The sources of inspiration are several : from the woods painted by Custav Klimt to the landscapes and the portraits of David Hockney.
