The art work The wind will carry us is composed by two separate oil paintings with frame.
The colours and marks are protagonist and creators of the imaginary.
The author in the painting on the left, represented the feeling of the night, as the main colours are blue and green in contrast with a smaller part of red, yellow,white and pink and the marks are strong and decisive.
The painting on the right with its lighter colours such as rose and white and a more sfumato coat, differs from the painting on the left as it reflects her view of the day light.
The paintings interact to each other as in both you can see some elements (colour and marks) of the other, giving complicity.
The viewer will have to be confronted with both of them at the same time.
The purpose of this art work is to evoke different feelings such as harmony, chaos, or anything in between. The wind will carry us addresses the viewer to a comforting universal vision of it.
The art work takes its name from the poetry written by the Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad:
The wind will carry us
In my small night, ah
the wind has a date with the leaves of the trees
in my small night there is agony of destruction
do you hear the darkness blowing?
I look upon this bliss as a stranger
I am addicted to my despair.
Listen do you hear the darkness blowing?
something is passing in the night
the moon is restless and red
and over this rooftop
where crumbling is a constant fear
clouds, like a procession of mourners
seem to be waiting for the moment of rain.
and then nothing
night shudders beyond this window
and the earth winds to a halt
beyond this window
something unknown is watching you and me.
O green from head to foot
place your hands like a burning memory
in my loving hands
give your lips to the caresses
of my loving lips
like the warm perception of being
the wind will take us
the wind will take us.
