Art of Miracles
The inspiration for the painting was the words of Francisco de Goya: “Imagination abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters; united with her, she is the mother of the arts and the source of their wonders.”
The circle in the picture symbolizes perfection and wholeness. In my perception, a connection between Imagination and reason. The circle is also perceived as a symbol of flowing energy and female fertility, which is also represented by the legs placed in the center of Pinart. Thus, the female legs / female lap are placed in the center of everything. Mother of Arts, the source of all miracles in my case is a woman.
A woman is full of imagination, guided by reason. Aspects within the circle are valuable (protected by the circle). But the leg protruding from the circle symbolizes the ”human factor”, occasional forfeiture of fantasies, violation of perfection and wholeness, lack of reason.
