Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The central painting in the a trilogy about lovelessness.

A mermaid has no sex organs but, living in the sea of emotions, can trap others, or remain trapped herself. In the mountains, an old couple of cracks embrace.

Sisyphus rolls a boulder, pushing two rocks together rather than the rocks being attracted. An apple hangs on the tree, temptation perhaps? Or just fecundity in a lifeless desert. A leaf falls to show the passage of time.

Love is everywhere except on the mermaid's rocks. She looks only towards the sea and the setting sun.

Materials used:

Oil on M.D.F. in custom-made solid wood frame.
