In “Vacancy,” a mixed media painting by Kyle Vena, the theme of transformation and letting go is explored through the metaphor of “Vacancy & a hotel room key.”
As Kyle and his spouse traveled and stayed in various rooms with the numbers 408, 448, 400, 804, and others, they were reminded of the importance of being emptied of clutter, expectations, and any other distractions in order to fully embrace change and a new beginning.
The painting depicts the unlocking of a doorway, symbolizing the power of communication, submission, and forgiveness in the process of transformation.
