Dancing with Crows
Dancing with Crows (2016) by Pako Campo.
This is another one of the digital #collages I did in 2016 for the International Producer Sara Marijuan, as part of the development of her personal website.
As inspiration for the making of this collage, I took the painting “Wheatfield with Crows” by Vincent Van Gogh. Van Gogh painted this work in July 1890, and it is commonly claimed that this was his last painting, however, art historians are not sure that painting is the last, since there are no clear historical records.
As in the original work, this collage represents a dramatic and cloudy sky, full of crows on a field of wheat. A feeling of isolation is reinforced by the main figure moving without looking forward and by the uncertain direction of the flight of the crows.
