DISAPPEARANCES Collection

Series ‘DISAPPEARANCES’ is an endless marine fable. Sirens of the endless seas call for all of us but only the few have the strength to answer the call. The best and the bravest follow their heart only to never return but they are not lost. All of us who have been left behind, we can glimpse them in our dreams or during our last moments at sea. The cradle of all life keeps our best to itself.

Disappearances 17, 2016

 Oil on gesso panel, 48 x 36 x 2 in

Disappearances 17. How to describe a cloud to the blind, or an angry sea to a highlander? What does color White taste like? Maybe like sugar, or salt, or maybe like snow: its irrelevant, nobody cares. But we all know what color Red is: it tastes like blood, it smells like danger, it feels like pain! How do you describe the beauty and the loneliness of an open sea? Why do you hold onto the fading memories of those left ashore, still waving farewells from the safety of routine and boredom? You don’t, you shouldn’t, you never reveal your feelings to the indifferent. If you are an artist, you have nowhere to run, all you can do is hide behind the colors. If you leave enough of yourself in your work, then someday you may be allowed to break the bond, you may win one pass on board of a Flying Dutchman. You will disappear. (Allois and Jörge)

Disappearances 10.  Is there a wall between Dreams and Reality? How does the everyday existence reflects itself onto the Dream? When exactly do Dreams come to life?

At this fleeting moment we can be whole again.  (Allois and Jörge)

Flying Dutchman is pounded by the waves of Indifference, its sails are torn by the furies of Envy and Agitation. Perseverance is its only strength, Love is its only salvation. Is there anything Flying Dutchman transmits to all of us, so deeply and safely rooted into our never-ending routine?… It does, but transmission goes unnoticed. Only those who set their goals and follow their dreams as if their life depends on it, only selected few who solved the Secret and realized that they are Alive, they get the message. They are invited aboard… (Allois and Jörge)
