Text by the artist:
A sailor stands on the beach looking at the sea. Is he waiting to sail off? Waves in their endless motion roll to the beach and back to the sea again. Is the sea a metaphor for unlimited desires, melancholy and loneliness, the seafarer her eternal partner? The horizon recedes and beckons.
