Embracing a visual language of colour, pattern, layering and spatial tension, this painting is part of collection that explores the deepness and complexity of intimate human relationships. Occupying a space of ambiguity, where backgrounds bleed into foregrounds and patterns break free from the confines of a set form and float off into space, the figures exist between somewhere real and imagined. Giving flesh to feeling, they are manifestations of memories, thoughts and dreams, a way to reflect on the intricacy and intensity of emotion.

Through the sharing of space – both physically and emotionally – the relationships formed become suspended in a transient moment, symbolically framed by large blocks of colour occupying the peripheries. In turn, these peripheral spaces mark a distinct border between the captured moment and everything that exists beyond it, with colour changes and spatial transformations transitioning across their margin.
