Painting: Oil on Wood.

Size: 4x3FT/ 48x36inch

This piece is inspired by the airplane crash in the French Alpes on March 2015. It was a striking event for me as my mother had worked as an air stewardess in her younger years. Having been travelling on planes since I can remember I have experienced all sorts of incidents and severe turbulence but nothing like the horror of knowing the plane is going to hit the ground. I could relate to the fears of the passengers when they knew what was about to happen. I can’t begin to imagine what must have gone through their minds in the last few moments.

I wanted to represent the souls of the passengers who died in the accident, lives that came to an abrupt end, vanishing into the horizon. Each one of those passengers were full of life, dreams and hopes and I tried to represent that with vibrant and positive colours before they vanish into the void, into a new ethereal life, like candle lights that go off after running out of air.
