Next Move  tells multiple stories in one, visual composition. The painting opens to an intense moment, in the game of chess, between two men. The first gentleman, on the right, seems to be in control of the match. He is chewing on his glasses and patiently awaiting his opponent’s next move.

A small figure observes the scene from the above balcony. This is one of several examples of how Victor Bregeda applies his meta-realistic method to draw out thoughts and emotions of his characters.

The view of the other player is formed from a haze. This man is looking down upon the board in contemplation of his next move. In this moment, Bregeda introduces the second storyline.

The hand of God resting atop the man’s head is the sign of the spiritual connection with our Creator. The chessboard comes to life with characters unfolding a life story.

This piece presents some insight as to how our life decisions are directed by God of the Universe.
