Reminiscent of 18th century romantic landscape painting, yet clearly modern as this landscape is set against a backdrop of the high rise buildings in the distance.
While a lovers meeting or tryst is timeless, these lovers play on the notion of romantic idyll overturned and are set in a landscape which is lit by the ever present light of the city. Thickly applied paint over fluorescent yellow provides a frame of modernity and its inescapable intrusion in nature.
