This started out as a little lead pencil sketch while I was on the phone one day. I loved the basic idea of the figure being out on a ledge in space with another creature melding right into itself. It’s not meant to convey a sense of pain but rather of two beings in symbiosis. I guess for me it was probably a little of being caught in a relationship that wasn’t heading in a clear direction and feeling the pull of the other person holding me down. The main figure is holding something that could be an energy conduit, but is struggling to keep this up.
The guache painting original is A3 in size and is one of the most time intensive paintings i’ve done. Each brick has more then 8 colours and there are a couple with a face or hidden messages inside them. It took me around 50 hours to complete the entire work, there are many layers you can’t see that were used to build up the intensity of colour.
