Issues of Vulnerability

Artist Statement

The inspiration for this painting was from a 5 minute sketch of a woman that I did in a Life Drawing session one evening. The body language that she conveyed seemed to indicate the feeling of vulnerability. I extrapolated on this idea and wove a story by including a male figure with the same body language. Then the painting became about relationships and the complications that ensue when people have issues of vulnerability.
