About this painting
This is the first work in The Flight Of The Swift, three works which concluded in 2016 with The High Flying Swift and So Many Swifts. Mark had painted a few triptychs before, but these three works were conceived with the conscious influences of classical-era musical sonatas and the associated aesthetic concepts, where multiple parts of a work are unified by a single theme. In a painting, the themes are visual and the swifts and colours form central motifs to unify the works.

The series begins with the hopeless dream of love. A contorted figure is shown with a heart shaped hole. Dreams, a ribbon of blue sky among a sky of grey rain, flow through the hole. Two birds fly in that sky, hopes, dashed by the distant wall.

This was Mark's first work to have music composed for it, to form a new artwork that combines both media. Music can instantly set mood, can touch us an communicate directly to our feelings, but it's difficult to convey intellectual ideas and complex ideas with music. Arguably, the dominant art form of the 20th century was the song, a combination of music and words, yet images can convey more than words, and instantly, and their language is more universal and timeless.

Technical details
The frame is plain grey to match the open space of the sky around it.
