The Kiss is Not Love


"The Kiss is Not Love" is an abstracted figural diptych presented as one piece in grey timber shadow framing.

The artwork is a contemporary interpretation of a Toulouse Lautrec painting - The Kiss. The original is a subtle rendition of lovers in bed and a daring subject for the era. This contemporary piece is more dramatically abstracted into a bedscape of brushstrokes surrounding the lovers. The diptych format is a reminder that, while we become framed together through passion, there is a separation between us.

Oil on canvas.
