Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Word salad is a psychiatric phenomenon, mostly seen in psychosis. It is depicted in this painting as a stream of words that seem at once intelligible whilst also gibberish. Sequences of rhyming words, neologisms (made up words) and non sensical juxtapositions allude to the disorganised thinking of psychosis. But might this not also be a beautiful piece of poetry?

Bold orange and blues set against a black background. Shapes define the outline of small and larger boats. They are motionless at dock. On a black background 2 naked women are almost suspended as they lean in to kiss one another. They are so close, and yet one feels they may not make it. Their nakedness represents their vulnerability. In the top right corner a bird in full flight has escaped it's cage.  Scratchy text spells out FREE. Other markings speak to the conflict and the difficulty in the situation.Against a black background three female figures emerge. One is hunched over and in a defensive position, one appears in white lace underwear and adopts a pose suggesting confidence and sensuality, the third wears a white dress; she has flared lace sleeves that might also be interpreted as wings. Text in the upper right corner says METAMORPHOSIS.A central female form glances back over her shoulder. She sees another version of herself, receding into the distance. Meanwhile to the other side, there's a third figure...less well defined, but bathed in a yellow glow. She seems to be moving in the opposite direction. More shadowy figures play in the background...they represent actions and intentions.
