About this Artwork
Convey is about the human experience, of being next to something, being alone, or being with someone very close but not touching.
This is expressed using the relationships of color, forms and the space articulated with line.
The painting’s meaning is created by the juxtaposition of the parts. Like in language, the meaning of the words evolves as you string the words together. In the painting, absence and presence together create meaning.
