Oil painting on board

Description

The painting explores themes of mortality, isolation, longing, melancholy and loss and sits somewhere between the physical constraints of reality and the anarchic realm of the subconscious.
Sculptural Maquettes were used as part of the process behind this image, which draws from Gothic motifs, fairy tales and archaic tropes to explore broader issues relating to the physical and subjective self within contemporary society.
