Description

Inspired by Klimt's "The Kiss" , I've brought the protagonists up to date for 2018. They are taking a selfie of a very public display of affection, surrounded by emojis. This is the second version I have made- the first one was intended as the centerpiece of my exhibition "Knickerless" at Slingshot Bar Gallery, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, but it sold as soon as it was done! Followed a mad rush to replace it, this time in landscape rather than portrait format, to suit the exhibition space better. It is on display there until March 5th, 2018., when I changeover to new paintings. The video is all about making the first version, but my process was the same. Enjoy!
