Intercontinental Jump

This artwork was inspired on the Cairns to Papua New Guinea Qantas flight, dated 10 January 2013, in which a passenger looking through the window discovered a 3-metre python on the plane wing. While I was living in Australia, I heard and read all kind of anecdotes about Australian wildlife, having come to the conclusion that everything is possible there.

This artwork, the first of Visions of Another Continent, represents how, when we travel for long periods, we always bring something, there is always something that changes inside. In my case, that was an increase in my passion for the wild and virgin nature, as well as for certain traits of the Australian lifestyle.

The airline logo shows Mount Uluru’s silhouette, under the six stars of the Australian flag, and a moon shaped like a boomerang, representing the aboriginal culture.

Significance of this artwork:  

Surprise is always present in our lives. But you need to be observant to discover it (some of the Qantas flight passengers completed the journey without knowing about the snake).

Also, travelling – like reading – enriches our lives, adds context, helps to find who we are and who we want to be.
