Couple in Venice by Ramon Pujol Boira
This captivating and illusive mixed media piece depicts a couple waiting to board a Gondola in Venice - a quintessentially romantic image, which has been ingeniously interpreted here by the artist. The couple appear almost as if they are standing on a stage, perhaps suggesting a sense of performativity within this typically romantic activity. The figures themselves are blurred, anonymous - seeming to fade into the background. A highly intriguing and compelling composition filled with symbolism and mystery.
