Requiem of Flight, 30x40 inches, oil on canvas by alexandramanukyan Requiem of Flight, 30x40 inches, oil on canvas by alexandramanukyan
Synopsis:
Perfectly intertwined in an aerial dance of courtship that defies all logic and yet somehow believed and sustained entirely by those who watch from below. As though magically daring the fates to bring upon their downfall, even the capricious gods of myth withhold intrusion, for they too want to see the story continue.

What a dramatic interplay of figures! What particularly strikes me is how the woman has her arms under the man, carrying him, which is the opposite to traditional dance routines. The way her hand holds his foot is very original. The tattoo on her leg is fabulous. Such wonderful work as usual! :)

Totally awesome! The grace, the elegance, the beautiful pose of the two figures... everything is mixed in perfect harmony and the image seems suspended in time. And I love your great care for details, especially the tattoos on the body. Great work!
