Ostensibly it is an image of an Ibiza summer party, fun and frolick, but needless to say references abound. The woman's body relates to earlier works of figures that move/float/fall through space (or water) though in this case for the first time the there is actually physical support to her position, many hands holding her up and sharing her weight. Reference to crucifiction in the wide open arms stretching diagonally across the canvas and bystanders/apostles/fellow active participants or mere bystanders in varying degrees of engagement and proximity.
The space above the figures will be abstract, watery filmy dreamy with psychedelic and symbolic references mixed in with water sprays yet to be defined, but speaking to the reading of the image. Lighting from above, of course, isn't that where all illumination comes from? On the right hand corner I plan to sketch in a drummer, so stay tuned.
