Painting: Oil, Acrylic on Canvas.
Self portrait - underwater - The inspiration came from the water, from the challenge to represent the movement of water and, finally, to transfer feelings via a figurative work. Through the color I try to have the observer feeling the melancholy, the quietude, the freedom, but in a serene atmosphere of absence of weight.
Compared to the portraits, where is evident inner psychological torment of the subject. Through water works he tried to transmit a feeling of freedom, serenity, although the feeling of loneliness remains. The whole atmosphere is still intimate and silent but now it is also relaxed.
The media were chosen to depict the reflection and the movement of water.
"The water works represent Terdich's last project, an extreme challenge which combines the message he conveys in his portraits and figures and the technical complications to render the movement, the transparencies and the light reflections of water and the fragmentation effects of bodies under water. These works are unusual and modern paintings, of complex realization, where the subjects are broken within the crystal water in a multitude of dynamic reflections". (R. Colamine')
