Part of a series of paintings which depicts different doors and different openings. Inspired by my walking journeys between home and the unemployment office in May/June of this year.
They are done on canvases which originally were meant to be other images and have now received at least 5 layers of acrylic.
Personally, I find doors fascinating, as the face of a home or a place. They appear to say one thing about the place, but can present another upon entry.
This door started as deviation from the other frontal-door-images. Unfortunately, the finished work didn't appeal to me at all. I did however, abstract the angular shapes of the original image and used it as part of the wall texture/structure. Elements of the layers of paint of the original were also incorporated into the existing image (broken lines and cracks). The inspiration behind the door and colour comes from the blue and white of Mykinos. There is a subtle reference to the moon and water, that has been covered up by the golden sun-face of the door knocker.
