Silence is a Scary Sound, The Lovers Triptych

Oil on linen

123 x 138 cm

Silence is a Scary Sound is symbolic of young love. Their relationship is youthful, passionate, but tempestuous and slightly naive. You have walked into the thick silence, following the chaos of an argument they have just had. They do not look at each other nor you, and the tension becomes the unwanted third person in the image.

The Lovers Triptych is a series of three paintings that explore the transitional stages of intimate relationships within the domestic setting. They are an exploration into contemporary depictions of Venus and Mars, inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s 1483 panel painting ‘Mars and Venus’. Each painting has a separate and contained narrative, as well as bearing a relationship as a triptych and timeline of how relationships mature and change. Are these a study of closeness or distance?
