Foolsgold

surreal painting by south african artist pieter van tonder titled 'foolsgold'

Size: 120 x 90cm | Oil on canvas

Bereavement. What is a mighty galleon without it’s ocean; what, a hole without diamonds; a desert without oil; a king without his throne? This painting speaks of a foolish hope or blind faith, of the kind that might get oneself stuck on life’s ararats. To me it brings a feeling of solitude and peace.
