Purchase this nice 36"w x 48"t acrylic paintnig by German artist Alfred Gockel.
He is a genius at combining and modifying color symbols into a balanced and intriguing painting.
The fish symbolize freedom, as well as the freedom to travel.
In my opinion, Mr. Gockel wanted the red patriotic stripes represent the path of a honorable life.
The Dali type figures moving out to the horizon may stand for a life's progression toward paradise.
I caught the tail-end of an interesting conversation between Alfred Gockel and one of his collectors discussing this painting.
What do you think? Alfred Gockel artwork has an abundance of symbolism that is fun to try to interpret.
This painting is on exhibit at Ahley's Art Gallery, Fuquay-Varina, near Raleigh, NC.
