Long Ash Tower
Original painting by Sofia Minson
Oil on canvas. 1400 x 1400mm.
The scene of this painting came to Sofia upon waking one morning. The cigarette with its long ash and Lord of the Rings type tower stands tall in a deserted flat landscape. The flakes of ash and the base of the cigarette house finely detailed pieces of Gothic architecture. Sofia has always had an interest in architecture as well as in fantasy/science fiction movies and books. The message of this artwork is debatable and Sofia finds hearing other people's interpretations of this painting an interesting part of the creative process.
