Run With It hangs above the mantle in my home, a converted barn, in rural England. It is the focal point of the room and has inspired much conversation, and contemplation, since it’s purchase. Visitors all take a turn answering the question, how does this make you feel? and the answers have ranged from optimistic, to anxious, to peaceful. Some people see a love triangle, in which a new relationship has bloomed while a previous partner is left dejectedly in the distance. Others feel that a similar change is depicted, but describe it in much more sanguine terms- as a new pairing setting off together with the blessing of an old friend. And still others focus on the speed and intensity of a captured moment which is rich in possibility. It is the friction and potentiality between the central figures that is most often noted and which has led to so many exchanges in the house. The painting has become a litmus test of our relationships with each other and our relationships with the outside world, as all good art should. Whatever meaning this painting held for the artist, I do hope that our experiences and daily interactions with your work inspire you to continue creating thought-provoking and challenging pieces of art. Warmest regards,
