GIRL WITH STRING – 1995 - Oil on Linen – 190 x 160 cm

The figure in this painting, like many of my paintings represents the universal human entity and her simple action of pulling a string against each hand is my analogy for the opposing tension within human entities whether they are individuals, communities or mankind. It could also be extended to the cosmic level and the various tensions within the Universe that scientists speak of. The pseudo-symmetry of the painting reflects the precarious equilibrium of all things.
