This is a mixed media canvas I call “Connection.” It’s vaguely inspired by Mexican religious paintings, partly inspired by Spanish art, especially Francisco Goya. Receiving Arcadia’s “So Red the Rose” album on vinyl was the catalyst for this painting. The red, black and white color scheme and the music compelled the basic premise- two star-crossed lovers, one possibly a phantom, or “shadow figure,” are bound to one another but torn asunder by circumstance, hence the barbed wire tying the two lovers together. It’s a tragic love story, depicted on canvas.
