    Oh wow!…but what do you mean no red wine or thread??? just kidding. I was wondering if there is a story behind these wonderfully poignant pieces…

  • Thank you for your favorites and comments Thea!
    oh I am sorry… “No red wine, no thread” was a short note for me… In the rest of the series, I painted the skin with red wine, but here Paul and Mary are sinking to the depths, so their skin is white and cold. Mary is falling apart so there is no thread to join her limbs. I suppose yes, there are stories behind the images but my stories are too sad and depressive, that’s why I will just let people imagine their own happy stories behind these colorful, funny images.

    by the way, I was just pulling your leg about the wine and thread…It was meant to be said in a voice of mock suprise meaning…“how could Ina possibly make an artwork without her trademark red wine and thread!!”….I thought that’s why you wrote it in your description, lol.
