Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This painting is a strong composition containing three young adult figures with Franny in the immediate foreground looking inquisitively out of the picture towards and beyond the viewer. She is questioning the world and her identity within it as young people do as they grow and is bewildered by her subjective outlook of other people ego's and phonieness as they all strive to make something of themselves without honesty and real conviction or understanding of purpose - without something that would attract respect.
She has the security of home to fall back on and the care, concern and understanding of her family. Inevitably her brothers talk her through her concerns in an attempt to allow her to pursue a fulfilled and relative existence that reflects here skills and philosophies.
This painting is conducted with large sprawls of magenta and purple which signifies spirituality and interest in world religions. Some of the hues remain ethereal whilst others merge with a soup of other colours into deep murky smudges.
The painting style is energetic free, flowing and offers hope in a multitude of directions which suites the liberal open-mindedness and intelligence of these characters. To loosely use and freely relate a quote by Oscar Wilde on aesthetics (beauty, truth, senses, identity, perception, and emotion and feeling), "Aestheticism is a search after the signs of the beautiful. It is the science of the beautiful through which a person seeks the correlation of the arts. It is, to speak more exactly, the search after the secret of life.".[
