24x24” Oil on Canvas

This oil on canvas, titled "Out of the Tower," presents a narrative scene that blends elements of fairy tale symbolism with a modern sensibility.

On the left, a stone tower reaches towards the sky, its architecture reminiscent of medieval times with twin spires and arched windows. Its positioning on the canvas gives it a sense of old-world stability and weight, a silent guardian of history and tales long told.

The center of the composition is dominated by a cobblestone path that weaves its way from the tower into the distance, suggesting a journey or escape from the confines of the tower. The path’s unevenness and the way it snakes through the landscape convey a sense of uncertainty and adventure.

To the right, the focal point is a figure, presumably a woman, in motion, as indicated by the dynamic flow of her red hair and the pink fabric of her dress. She rest her hands on a bicycle, symbolizing self-liberation and empowerment. Her forward movement away from the tower and towards the viewer suggests an escape or a release from captivity.

In stark contrast to the rest of the scene, the background features a forest ablaze with fire, casting an orange glow that reflects peril. The conflagration symbolizes destruction, change, an purification—a cataclysmic backdrop to the woman’s flight.

The sky above the scene is rendered in tumultuous shades of blue and gray, possibly signifying a state of transition or turmoil in the narrative.

Overall, "Out of the Tower" is a metaphor for breaking free from constraints, whether they be physical, societal, or self-imposed. The juxtaposition of the historical tower with the fiery forest adds a layer of complexity, suggesting that liberation often comes in the face of great challenges or at the cost of leaving something behind. The painting invites viewers to reflect on themes of freedom, transformation, and the courage it takes to leave the familiar and embark on a journey into the unknown.
