The Missing Piece

surreal painting by south african artist pieter van tonder titled 'the missing piece'

Size: 48 x 60cm | Oil on Canvas | SOLD

That magical moment when all falls in place and the veils lift; a moment of clarity, wherein all make sense as a coherent whole. Somewhere between free will and destiny, two forces battle for sovereignty. What we perceive as our reality is perhaps the dust kicked up by this eternal battle, beautifully tinted by the setting sun. Sometimes free will wins, sometimes destiny, but for the most part they’re inseparably intertwined in their fiery tango.

I just realized that a near future painting must urgently happen, dwelling on this very theme! The Tango.
