Ships in a Tube
Artist featured in a collection
This image was inspired by the medieval topos of "Ship of Fools" - it was a popular allegory, originating from Book VI of Plato's Republic, about a ship with a dysfunctional crew. This theme inspired different artists through the ages, not just painters, like Hieronymus Bosch, but writers, musicians as well, both classic and contemporary ones.
This image skillfully combines elements of art and philosophy to create a contemporary interpretation of the "Ship of Fools" allegory that explores the timeless themes of societal dysfunction and the ignorance and stupidity that can manifest in both individuals and groups. This artwork encourages reflection on the consequences of a society that is not in harmony, and challenges us to reconsider the role we play in creating a functioning and enlightened community.

Peter Zelei is a Hungarian visual artist who specializes in portrait, conceptual imagery, landscapes and also photo manipulations. From his use of colour and surreality, he creates a reality found only in his imagination, but with an emotion that is undeniably human. He explores the divide between darkness and light, unafraid to explore themes that others may find uncomfortable. His work evokes a connection from the viewer, a feeling of oneness of the human experience and a mystery that will leave you wondering how the story will unfold. He exposes the rawness, surreality, mysticism and yet also poetry of his surroundings. His photographs and photo manipulations are created within an immense subtleness and ease. They take the observer on a journey into the most intimate realms of the human experience. Tina Lorien (Gallerie Lorien)
