Mom and Dad
Mom and Dad is a part of a series about the aging and mortality of my parents. It is the story of their marriage through time as seen through my eyes. In the upper right hand corner of the canvas is a small square which depicts my parents on their wedding day, taken from a photograph. Happy, loving, proud. The remainder of the painting tells the the rest of the story.
I love the splashy, loose paint, the swirling, whirling dynamic energy of this painting. I love the dripping splash of rust colored paint in the upper corner which is reminiscent of blood. I love dynamic quality of the figures, the dress flowing out from the screaming mother figure, and how the male figure bashing into the side of the painting almost creates a sound. They are trapped.
