Framed in a simple graphite coloured box frame.
‘Yeah You’ the phrase itself rolls into the Cornish slang and locals conversation, “Alright?, Yeah You? Yeah’” It tip toes around the question without wanting to have an in-depth chat. For me this relates to opening up. Whether about being actually alright and stable. It’s an emotional masquerade, something I tend to do myself, rather squash the issue as soon as possible as a way of protection than to look weak or troubled. In parallel to the phrase, 2 figures sit in life rafts, venting out these muted emotions that are kept to oneself below the surface.
Along the playfulness of the phrase and these hidden emotions, some of which towards a current confusing lover. Not wanting to feel vulnerable and in the position to be hurt. A half guard for a figure/background painted as half and half. Green for good and go do it, open up and be vulnerable, the black for a bad idea. It’s not going to end well. Above the legs of the lady is a figure head self-portrait, a head in hands of future embarrassment.
