About the artwork

A recurring motif in Pendelio’s paintings is journeying. The artist oftentimes compares sea journeys to love. In the vast ocean, travellers undergo perilous storms and harsh weathers before reaching the intended harbour. Always an adventure, one never really knows what the journey entails which is similar in romantic love. Couples undergo ups and downs - both journeying together towards their intended destination. There is rarely certainty but this is what makes the journey even more beautiful. “A white whale, as big and as tattooed as an old sailor’s bag. It has seen the world, and is carrying lovers, carelessly flying and enjoying each other’s company.... They seem like opposites but we need them both, to be light with fantasy but also take lessons from what we see and experiment. Isn’t that a good recipe for life?” Christian Pendelio
