Boys and Girls
This is part of my current run of works, i began by randomly painting people i know, images selected from an obsessive collection of snapshots from over five years.
A recurrant theme emerged however, the boy and the girl, when viewed together the works seemed linked and the characters seemed to have relationships with eachother.
This series almost instantly became something else. A portrait of the boy and the girl, the archetypal characters so (seemingly) important in this era of life.
The boys and girls are evasive from your view, they are engaged in no apparent activity, but are still doing something and they are alone.
This boy is actually my boyfriend.
