The-WayBack - Riccardo Rossi - Painting

The Wayback


The Wayback is a painting by Riccardo Rossi on a Wood Engraving found in a garbage of Seville.
Through Acrylic colours and Wax Pastels this vision outlines a biographic roadmap, where two subjects walk back from a narrow path high up in the sky. Reading the artwork from far, a bright background descend down to into the canvas picturing the city of Carmona in a dark night, where the author gently moves forward hand by hand with his shadow.

“And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul

And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll”
