About the artwork
Bathed in deep, rich, autumnal tones of purples, ochres and reds, this piece depicts a group of three stood at the base of three large windmills before a deep blue horizon line. With the two larger figures carrying a violin and a microphone, the blades of the windmills carry the surreal imagery of being large planes of music bars - lined with rows of warm toned hearts. Showcasing symbols often seen in Coplu's works, this painting encompasses the artist's love for music, love, and aesthetic beauty in his style, bringing them together in harmony.
