Sailing Shift (2017) by Lena Nechet

An abstract impression of a sailing boat on a quiet day in a bay, when suddenly wind starts, and it is uncertain, whether the green-turquoise water would stay calm.

The body of the vessel seems to be sturdy and solid, except for one section on the right, where it ambiguously split by the serenity of the light water.

The color-juxtaposition of viridian and several hues of purple symbolizes the cool dignity of being alert to the unpredictability of nature, and the unagitated preparedness to the certain but yet unknown change.

Shift your perception from the festivity of the warm flowy red and the excitement of adventure to the serenity of being.
