The Balancing Act


1 in stock


Oil and Acrylic Painting Balancing ActA fun image with a poignant theme: many of us who are in relationships and/or parents have to perform this precarious balancing act everyday!  We might not always be as poised as these two: today they are balanced and in harmony.  I would say though that the man is almost oblivious to what he is holding up, he’s rather nonchalant, not appreciating what (or who) relies on him.  The woman maintains a serene “tree-pose” – a hard one to master, and she is probably working at least twice as hard to stay up there! (Discuss!)

I have been successfully becoming more gestural and expressive in my use of paint, in order to demonstrate the beauty of the mediums and the exuberance I feel at being able to express myself this way.  The figures are painted in permanent acrylic inks, and the marks surrounding them are oil paint.  Oil and Acrylic on Canvas 40 x 140 cm
