About this painting
An idea about the pain of isolation and denial of it. The original image was a black square that hummed and glowed, but a white square is even more nothing than a black one, and being its inverse better conveys denial as well as being more visible (black is nothing; the glow is an object in itself that shouldn't be permitted to exist and malform the idea).

The colours come from my memory, the title page to an Amiga computer game called Hilt; magenta and black and quite visually startling. The image in Hilt was of the three headed Cerberus, and perhaps that symbolism too is important.

The seascape shows the suppression of a storm. The erect lighthouses are switched off, overseeing a calm surface and turmoil beneath.

Technical details
The idea sketch has the basic elements of the original but the figure details are mere shadows. These were later composed more substantially, using colour to convey the mood.
