He is the Phoenix, reborn from ashes, bringing fire to melt the ceiling of ice separating the female figure from freedom. She is the Atlas, doomed to carry the burden of her own imprisonment. Her revival is slow, drop by drop, but inevitable. Once the last ice melts she will be free. And this is the story of the painting: after ten years from creating the original Phoenix and the Strongmen, exploring the team of rebirth, melting walls, freeing from chains I came across the excellent photo of the male nude by Jaap de Jonge. I immediately fell in love with his spectacular photograph and knew this was my next Phoenix, after receiving the author's permission to paint the piece I started work. The female figure's author I could not find ? [So if any of you knows the author, please- direct me!!] I had the photo sent by a friend years ago in the form of print-screen.And here is the result.I know that each of you will tell a different story when looking at this painting, but I will tell you mine.He is the Phoenix, reborn from ashes, bringing fire to melt the ceiling of ice separating the female figure from freedom. She is the Atlas, doomed to carry the burden of her own imprisonment. Her revival is slow, drop by drop, but inevitable. Once the last ice melts she will be free.
