This painting is full of symbols, patterns and landscape. Looking closely and starting with the empty rocking chair, empty cradle behind the tipped and cracked leaking kettle, the picture plane that looks active is actually abandoned. Hanging from the clothes line are work clothes, socks, towel and a woman grabbing the wing of a black bird. The setting is a forest camp bracketed by spiked flowers in the foreground, trees just behind the domestic scene. The mountains in the far background isolate the camp from any neighboring village. Political? Personal? There is a lot more to see up close.
