This painting is, firstly, about the beauty and diversity of humanity. More profoundly, it is about how, together with our intense variety, we are connected on a deep and simple level.
In Soul Train, each individual comes from a different world, yet threads of their stories, as depicted through paint and fantasy, are entwined - the history of a loving elderly couple is mirrored by the dancing young man and woman in front of them, a woman wears furs identical to that of a polar bear. Is the bear real or a child’s drawing? A wealth of details brings each character to life and the use of bright colors, dynamic interactions, and humor make this painting an eye-catching centerpiece.
Together, these elements create a world in which time is meaningless, love is in the air, and each person maintains his and her individual personality and life-story on a shared and awesome journey into the future.
