The foggy place depicted in this artwork is extremely unique. In addition to the huge clearing and path in the middle, where a hiker can be seen, we can also observe an irregular shape resembling the moon. The object looks like a machine or a strange space station, as shapes reminiscent of buildings, pipes, antennas, cables protrude from it. Is the wanderer heading toward it? If so, why? The fog impairs judgment. The only thing that can be a hint is the title – “To the last journey.”
Using a surrealistic addition, the artist has created an interesting thought-provoking image. With this treatment, it opens up many avenues of interpretation for the viewer, who can immerse himself in the image and invents his own stories.
