In this series I am looking at representing passion through colours, textures and shapes.
As passion itself is a deep, mysterious and compelling emotion, the work is (as all of my paintings are) multi-layered. The layers representing the different feelings and desires we feel when embraced by passion.
Yet not all of the emotions and our responses to passion are benign. Some are quite destructive and sometimes passion leads to violence. This too I have endeavoured to capture in the work.
Passion can also be both cold and hot. Comforting as well as distressing.
For everything, there is a Ying to every Yang.
