"The Cracked Sky"
The constitutional disposition of longevity. Symbolic use of time passing, using the primordial earth in the foreground by showing the structure of a volcanic type of fissure to a very peaceful contemporary skyline. Between the two, the tortoise, which is itself a symbol of longevity. The dry conditions portrayed in the middle ground is also symbolic of the time of drought, which seems to last forever. To make the meaning of the painting less obvious I used a title which described the sky when viewed obliquely. A favorite surreal landscape.
