Sail To Hope 33

"Sail To Hope has a symbolic expression to emphasise the vulnerability and globalisation.

Our world is smaller than ever, as if, even sailing to another land by a paper boat is possible.

People are relocating, changing life for hope, taking big risks for a better life.

 

Fast information exchange is triggering the motivation to relocate especially from less

developed eastern countries to the modern western life.

Allegorical shapes of clouds and waves inspired from the eastern miniature art,

represents migration from eastern world. The crowded, impersonalised textures symbolise

modern west. Bright coloured acrylic ink has been used to gain a sense of marbling effect

additional to the usual acrylic and collage technique. Emphasising hope as being the biggest

drive for millions of people to take a journey to unknown."
