Les Amoureux

Jackson's Painting Prize 2021
81 x 65 cm

“In Les Amoureux the bright contrasted colours and dynamic brush marks relate to the passionate embrace that is the theme of this painting.
The two figures are locked together, the focus of intensity in the painting is on their connection and their bond is enhanced by the blocked in colour of the background that surrounds them and pushes them into one central form in the painting.
My paintings consider themes of intimacy, unity, identity and the dynamics in human relationships.”
