My painting refers to a Japanese myth that appears as a legend in the whole of East Asia and has its origins in China: The Red Thread of Fate. The red thread of fate connects two people who are destined to meet. The thread is invisible and indestructible: a special bond which can not be broken, regardless of place, time and circumstances. This connection will be given concrete form through an encounter.
