'Sail Away” by Connor Maguire
My painting “Sail Away” is based on the theme of escapism. Problems arise in life and like everyone we all want to escape it or make it disappear. I have a love for the surf and the beach and it’s a place where I can go to get away from it all.
I have watched both of my sons using their imagination to entertain themselves playing with a paper plane, hats and pretending to be somewhere else being pirates at times.
Whether you are a child or an adult dealing with issues whether they be in work or school, we all need to get away or take a break. I used my son as the subject of the portrait using vibrant colours in this painting trying to convey a sense of happiness and joy. A telescope and a hat made from paper and the background a bright sky out at sea represents everyone who need to sail away from bumps in life whether they be domestic or other personal issues in home or work life.
