1 of 3 paintings from ‘The Lovers Triptych’ Series that explore the transitional stages of intimate relationships within the domestic setting. They are an exploration into contemporary depictions of Venus and Mars, inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s 1483 panel painting ‘Mars and Venus’. Each painting has a separate and contained narrative, as well as bearing a relationship as a triptych and timeline of how relationships mature and change. Are these a study of closeness or distance?
