Above All Perspectives
This winter cloudy scene with its corresponding underground rainy landscape takes the viewer in a mysterious spiritual journey. We, as human beings, have learned to live our lives in spite of so many mysteries around our existence and spirituality. We are always trying to make the best in this journey called life while keeping our subconscious calm through many different ways: religion, meditation, exercise, travel, art, etc. Let's continue to make our lives a happy place just like that cozy tiny house that reaches high into the sky. The sky is not the limit!
My surreal paintings are always inspired by nature and the fact that we come from it. I am intrigued by both, nature and the meaning of our own existence. The more connected we are to nature, the better we can understand ourselves. I believe that past-present-future are all interconnected and I want to capture this connection as a single moment in my art.
This surreal painting measures 24x30 inches with a depth of 1.5 in. The sides were painted so there is no need for a frame. It's ready to hang!

Llanes “Above All Perspectives” explores the multidimensional scape of living. The composition is divided horizontally between two atmospheres. An elongated house reaches from the bottom of the canvas and arrives through the snowy surface amongst the trees, peaking into the sky. Perspective plays a dual role in this painting. Firstly, and most visually obvious, is the two-point perspective house in the foreground.
A house is a symbol of many things, it’s a valued personal space and may reflect one’s success in life. It may also be a familial and protected space of physical and emotional shelter, a home.
Beyond the multifaceted composition, a deep and mysterious vastness encompasses the background. Diving further, many planes offer deeper interpretations. The focal interpretation of perspective is a perpetual and evolving journey of dynamical stages of awareness. Alternating windows vertically climb the house symbolizing these stages.
The centric value here is the variegated meanings of a house.
Above all, is the sometimes-extensive journey it may take to build that space one may call “home.”
