About Symbole Du Jour

The artwork “Symbole Du Jour” by Abdul Mati Klarwein, created in 1984, is part of the Magic Realism art movement and belongs to the “Inscapes” series. It is a landscape genre painting that exhibits the features typical of Magic Realism, where everyday scenes are imbued with a sense of enchantment and mystery.

The painting presents a vividly detailed landscape scene that plays with light and shadow to create a sense of depth and intricacy. The upper section reveals a cross-section of the ground, displaying layers of earth and roots along with a creek or stream cutting through the terrain. The grass is depicted with meticulous attention to texture and color variations, indicating the lushness of the environment.

In the lower section, darkness looms, a contrast to the upper brightly lit setting. The bottom part of the image introduces a more mystical element with a silhouette of what appears to be some creature, along with a distinct bright symbol at its center, which might be interpreted as a focal point of energy or a magical entity within the landscape. The juxtaposition of detailed natural elements and the otherworldly dark figure contributes to an atmosphere that is characteristic of Magic Realism, blending the realistic with the magical or mystical.
