Artist's description:

The painting is inspired by the riots of the UK in August 2011, and thoughts of division within society.

The two shapes and two different sized canvases are weighted to give an uneasy feeling of being slightly 'off kilter' whist still holding in common certain elements of their form.

The shapes represent the 'them' and 'us' of the discussions after the events - both seething with energy - and although different, basically made up of the same marks and colours.

The white space all around is the 'blank' of possibility - possibility to be whatever shape, colour, type of person - but also space not being used to spread into whilst we cling tightly in groups, and space which then forms a divide.

On two chunky box frame canvases, signed on the rear and ready to hang. Dispatched with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Materials used:

Acrylic on two deep edge, gallery wrapped canvas - with the painting continuing onto all sides of both canvases.
