Artist's description:

This piece speaks to being loved unconditionally. Here we see three versions of a woman, each more convoluted than the next. She is complex, screwed up, confusing yet colorful and lovely. The man reaching for her loves all of her. The upside down cross on his face represents her feelings of not knowing whether to trust him or not. She is both reaching out for him and pushing him away. She is looking away because she doesn't want him to see all her flaws. He is quite possibly a saint yet there is something imperfect about him as well. They are both flawed and in a struggle of love and trust, togetherness and loneliness. It's all so complex and confusing, like the colors and lines in the piece. We all wish love were simple but I've found that it rarely is. But in the end when love is real, I believe the struggle is worth the effort, and that if we don't give up, we can eventually let ourselves go into the full embrace of another, and find everlasting comfort.
