Bird of Prey | Marko Klomp | Oil and Linen

A bird of prey soars over a city. The top two-thirds of the painting open sky and the bird. An indistinct high rise penetrates the middle third. The lower third of the painting is a bird's eye view of a metropolis with many trees.

My first guess of where this bird of prey might be soaring above would be Dallas, Texas. However, Marko lives and works in The Hague. The bird can be a "Rode Wouw" a uniquely European bird of prey. One had recently returned after thirty years of absence from the area.

The soft focus of the painting leaves the city and country an ambiguous blur, but the sense of Freedom in the sky is unquestionable. Another name for this painting could have been Freedom. The combination of modern high rise and an utterly free predator in the soft pastel colours create a dynamic composition and meaning. The meaning might have some capitalist overtones or nature versus concrete themes. It is deliciously open to pour hope, cynicism, politics and environmental theories into, while at the same time being able to create a sense of peace.

 

"Bird of prey" is part of the 2017-2018 series Cantima, which is Latin for a compilation of songs. A song in Latin is cantus. Each painting is inspired by a cantus/song. The song that inspired this painting is Bird of prey’ by Jim Morrison. You can listen to the song and look at the painting.
