About this painting
A painting about controlling behaviour, emotional blackmail.

The painting tells a complex story starting at the bottom. The woman grasps at the leg of the man, as she points towards the noose, a threat of suicide. Her grasp wraps around him then plunges inside to his heart, consuming, yet it comes out again, from an ear. His face looks away, not listening. Her stream continues, then wobbles away, thinly into a silence and a free flying butterfly...

Surrealist paintings demand attention, and this shows how a complex emotional event can be portrayed, both in temporal and timeless fashion. Images can be read, like words, to tell a story as well as having an emotional impact in an instant.
