It’s all over Red Rover
It’s all over Red Rover is an Aussie slang phrase meaning to finalise something, to admit it’s over, done & dusted. This painting tells a story of a relationship that has ended. Letting go of the elastic band that stretches way to far and hurts when it snaps back. Both these figures represent myself as I experienced a range of emotion getting to this decision.
I’ve used Red tones and charcoal which best describes myself emotionally. The Fluid line of the charcoal is connected, intense and strong. The shades of red emphasis my feelings of passion, enmeshment, frustration and eventual relief as I go through this process of ending this relationship.
