Context and Inspiration

“Sailboats stained glass” is a work created in 2024. Inspired by the beauty of sailboats and the aesthetics of stained glass and mosaics, this work combines two strong visual elements to create a unique and captivating composition. The painting explores the juxtaposition of geometric shapes and marine subjects, a combination that reflects originality and inventiveness.

Visual Description

The painting depicts stylized sailboats sailing against a geometric background reminiscent of the appearance of stained glass windows or mosaics. The composition is graphic and well structured, with shapes and colors carefully arranged to create visual harmony.

The color palette is varied, including shades of blue and green, as well as touches of orange, red, yellow and white. These bright, contrasting colors bring depth and dynamism to the work, evoking both the sea and the light passing through a stained glass window.

Painting Techniques and Materials

I use oil on canvas for this work, applying colors precisely to create sharp shapes and subtle transitions. The 3D canvas adds an extra dimension to the work, allowing light to play on the painted surfaces and accentuate the contrasts between the different colored sections.

Thematic Analysis

“Stained Glass Sailboats” explores themes of navigation, freedom and natural beauty through the prism of decorative art. Sailboats, symbols of travel and adventure, are represented in an aesthetic context reminiscent of stained glass windows, symbols of light and spirituality. This combination creates a work that is both contemplative and energetic, reflecting the duality of tranquility and movement.
