A Painful Embrace

DSC00446 In this large painting I wanted to capture the embrace of someone suffering with their love one trying to comfort them. I didn’t want to put any expression or evidence in the identity of the people as I feel is irrelevant as it would take away from the fragility of the human condition which I was trying to portray. These spirit-like bodies merging together in one final embrace are developing flesh between them binds their spirits together to create something that isn’t visible but is evident in both the mental bodies of the beings. In painting this I am trying to show mental connection between two beings within the physicality of painting.
