Deluged by Rob Gonsalves

Ambiguous 22 November 2015 0 Comments

In this painting by Rob Gonsalves, the scene in the foreground presents an entirely different meaning than the scene in the background.  This type of transition is pretty common in all paintings from Gonsalves.  If you look toward the back of the image, it appears to be an open body of water – maybe even an ocean.  In the foreground, however, there is a group of individuals standing around and holding umbrellas.  The guy that is in the tall tree on the right helps to add to the confusion presented in this scene.  Is he climbing the tree to get a better look at all the people with uniform umbrellas, or is he just attempting to stay dry?
