The triangle represents the swim leg of a triathlon. The swim course is defined with buoys, represented with a triangular shape. In this painting, the triangle is three-dimensional with a parachute-like material.
The primary color reflects the simplicity and complexity of stepping over the starting line.
In this painting, we see the simple shape of the circle, over a primary color. The two circles represent the triathlon bike wheels. The three-dimensional aspect is key, as bike tubes were used to create the two wheels in motion.
The back circle represents a racing disk and the front circle a deep dish wheel.
The rectangular shape represents the inflatable finish line and is made with shoe laces. The extended lace represents the ribbon of the finish line. The five beads at the tip represents the ultimate reward – The Medal.
The beads also symbolize the five phases of the triathlon – Swim, T1, Bike, T2, and Run.
