THE EXPRESS OF SHANGAI 44,88 x 35,04 inch Oil/Canvas

The Shanghai Express is one of a series of works that will mark the journey. The metaphor of an inner journey. Lonely travelers who are just passing through, self-sufficient, firm in their vital adventure.
In the image a sophisticated woman appears absorbed while travelling in the Orient. The tropical pheasant imprints a certain air of dreaminess, halfway between fantasy and reality. Again the idea of introspection appears when she looks thoughtfully out the window. Life passes before her eyes as she rides on a time that does not stop…and judging by the luggage it will not be a short trip.
