When Two People

When Two Poeple
March 2010
Acrylic on canvas
96cm x 197cm

Emotions, when they are strong, often explode between people, whether it be love or anger, I wanted to show how this would look if we could strip things back, people down to their skeletons, and pull back a layer of the world to reveal emotions in a visible more tangible way. 
I painted this on my living room floor one morning... After scraping and smudging the paint with my hands and standing on chairs with tins of paint for the right affect I think I achieved a general sense of emotion that comes when two peoeple are together.

It's just a shame my carpet is now red and blue with white and yellow streaks... but it was worth it.
