Lovers

Lovers.jpg

"just beyond the shimmer of light their bodies

roseate glistened;

 

bringing ineffable peace, and the gladsome

return with the night of all things that morning

 

ruthlessly parted, the child to its mother,

lover to lover.”

Fragments from Sappho

An experimental painting focused on intimacy at its core, devoid of gender and the other categories we use to categorize and demean love. 

Oil on canvas, 9 x 12 in.
