CONVERSATION

Love is blind and is an emotion felt by all human beings from all backgrounds and cultures. One of the byproducts of Love is unity.

The painting has a couple; a male and female facing opposite directions yet have the same neck. This speaks to remaining united even though having a difference in opinions. The “Horseshoe Neck lace” which is thought to bring luck in certain cultures can be a symbol of luck if they remain united. 

he third lip and simple illustration of a facial profile,  are a metaphor of  a confidante, the one that lives in us and are in constant CONVERSATIONS with..

The collaging with the Shangaan bag / China bag material, is a reflection of how we as travellers are in unison and companionship with our luggage, the intensity of security inclining to loss. Conversations, the title of the piece, is an embodiment of our silence, laughter,  emotional and pseudo characteristics in assurance that all is well.
