Gummi Elation (2019) & Second Skin (2019)

Watercolour and pencil on paper, 28 x 38cm. From Frivolity in Fearful Times (series)

 

‘Two watercolour paintings show fragile yet powerful scenarios of partnered, fluid, and dressed figures. In ‘Gummi Elation‘ (2019) our fetishistic protagonists melt into their contained world, wearing tight bodysuits of black and red. In ‘Second Skin’ (2019) a duo of soft forms appears in a starker, unknown environment. Perhaps in subspace, their bodily tones overspill from the confines of their drawn outlines. In both works, neither are constrained by gravity or the weight of their bodily forms. Are we seeing figures experiencing heightened ecstasy and dribbling pleasure, or instead, wrestling to find a new understanding in a difficult, contemporary world?’  – Susie Green (2021)
