Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LAS VEGAS - Feb 19, 2020 - Kush Fine Art Galleries and the creator of “Metaphorical Realism,” Vladimir Kush, are pleased to present his latest artwork release: “In Full Sail” Giclee on Canvas (Limited Edition 188, Size 60” x 41”). The fantasy element in the painting is undeniable: the wings and bodies of the giant dragonflies form the very ship, its sails, and more unexpectedly, its masts. We see clearly the ‘sailors’ sliding swiftly up and down as they set the unusual sails at the captain’s command. We see those fantastic sails shining with a cold luster and a seasoned navigator at the bow watching closely for any suspicious maneuvers of the other ships out at sea. Strengthening the sense of an intense vigil is the ‘oculus’ wings on both sides of the rostrum.
1. Fantasy ghost ship
Appears in the poem Airship by Mikhail Lermontov describing a fanciful journey and miraculous posthumous apparition of Emperor Napoleon, who died and was buried on the island of St. Helena in the Atlantic Ocean in 1821. The story mentions a ghost-ship that is speeding to its shores every year on the anniversary of the deposed monarch’s death.
2. The Flying Dutchman (De Vliegende Hollander)
A legendary ghost ship that is doomed to sail forever, never making it to the shore. It is usually seen from afar, sometimes in a halo of light. According to the legend, when the Flying Dutchman comes across another vessel, its crew tries to communicate and send messages ashore addressed to the people who have been long gone. Such a meeting was regarded as a bad omen among the seafarers.
3. Cutty Sark
The word ‘sark’ is Scots for ‘short chemise,’ and cutty suggests that it is far too short. The nickname refers to the famous Scottish witch Nannie Dee whose figure is gracing the bow of the vessel (a half-naked young woman clutching a horse’s tail). The owner John Willis decided to use it for a new clipper he ordered after seeing a painting of a young flying witch in a nightie – the heroine of the poem Tam O’Shanter by Robert Burns.
The World-Recognized Artist defines the imperceptible and embarks us to set sail on a metaphorical voyage with his new Masterpiece. Kush reflects the world in the mirror of the metaphor, which leaves the mind open to grasp onto the hidden likeness of things and events. Metaphor Has No Limits.
