There is nothing better than spending time with friends and enjoying great conversation. As a lover of art, what better topic than the beautiful paintings you possess?
Many people are unfamiliar with Victor Bregeda’s work and the intricate details that it holds. The individual interpretations are limitless and can lead to a wonderful discussion.
With that said, we want to introduce you to some of his most talked about artwork in a new series of blog posts. Each post will familiarize you with a group of paintings that are connected through a central theme. Our first group of paintings comes from both the Romance and Contemplations Collections. Each encompasses the core values of a family and of what makes up a home.
While each house is made up of different groups of people and personalities, they are built from the same foundation of:
In each of these paintings, we are made aware of each of these concepts through different channels of interpretation.
In the first two, we see a softer side to these emotions. Generations plays on the distinct family dynamic across the ages. Notice the different family members lost within the roses. This beautiful work tells the story of multiple generations of love and what has blossomed from it.
Eye of the Beholder shares this same ideal with an elderly man conversing with his wife and seeing her younger self through his glasses. Though time has passed, his view and love for her remains the same.
The other two artworks play more on the responsibility aspects that make up a family.
In Homecoming, we see a sailor making his way home as his pets anxiously await his arrival. After his long travels, this is where he finds comfort and belonging. This is his home.
Good Catch demonstrates what keeps the family going. We see a man and son standing outside of their home, admiring their many blessings. The fish is representative of the proverb:
“Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.”
Pretty creative, huh?
While each of these paintings has different ways of presenting it, all of them embrace one main theme, family.
Victor is a firm believer in everything connecting and has many more examples present amongst his artwork. Victor stated in a recent interview,
“That is what I am doing in my paintings. I recreate my childhood images that are present everywhere.”
Victor insists that each person draw their own perspective based on life experiences and allow his paintings to solicit a childhood memory of your own.
