Winds have often given direction to maps. They gave direction to the earliest representations of the world and as trees do, they form an intermediate between the sky and the earth. In relation to Depelchin’s most recent works, the winds have a singular position: they are the bridge, the thriving force to lift creator and spectator up to Depelchin’s so called creational space.
Peter Depelchin’s four winds; Boreas, Zephyros, Notos and Euros all refer to different paintings and sources. To depict Zephyros, Depelchin was inspired by a picture in a psalm book he photographed in the sacristy of the Duomo of Siena.
