A classic beautifully painted oil picture by the amazing Marina Syntelis (b.1975)!
The way that Marina captures the swimmer returning to the surface of the water in the swimming pool is truly mesmirizing!
In her words Let Go is about: 'There are times when we are in the water, when sounds seem distant, gravity is absent. In this painting I tried to relive this moment. The moment we are all alone and don’t even care if we are going up or down. The arm could be asking for help or is simply free. The water of the swimming pool distorts the shapes as our brain recognizes them. The figurative becomes abstract all thanks to the water.'
The painting is signed on the canvas, painted in oils using Marina's special technique and measures 70cm x 100cm.
The further away you walk from the painting the clearer the image becomes. It is hyper-realism with magical expressionism at its finest!
It is framed beautifully in Marina's trademark double boxed white mediterranean style floating box frame, which sets it off very strongly.
