The Rain is Over

The Rain Is Over is like a cloudburst within Bobkin’s work. The mystical scene he portrays here is accompanied by impressive use of color, symbolizing the departing clouds. We see figures in white tunics passing in procession from under the smoke of the city, perhaps a reference to his own constant quest for spiritual reality. These worlds intertwine in a combination of recognizable and alienating elements, but the outlook is positive: the clouds part, the sky clears up.
