le fou dans le soleil

The below piece is based on the 'fou' tarot card symbolising this lovely gentleman's non-conforming attitude to life. 

Having walked a path different to most, which led to both mistakes and realisation, Alex is a spirit in search of experience. As the 'real world' nips at his heels he feels more akin to the 'crazy' than the bourgeois. 

Acknowledging the micro/macro view of the cosmos and fascinated by the infinite, he feels an affinity with 'the fool's' holy madness and ability to tune into the inner workings of the world.
