The background is black, allowing only a few colors, such as orange, a light green, a dark hue of blue and white to slip in. The brushstrokes are strong, allowing viewers to trace, in part, the artist’s movement on the canvas. The black is not uni-directional but encompasses a large array of movement, from the horizontal to the vertical, from the descending and ascending and the circular to the oval. The point is that irrespective of the color used, the artist possesses the talent to create patterns on black and by using black.
In the middle of the canvas there are two forms, one is oval shaped while the other seems to be jutting out as if the figure painted in profile. The colors employed on either is the same. The first figure to the right is painted in golden-yellow and at the top of the image is a triangular blue, decorated with orange, red, gold and white. The other figure is painted in profile and is also a golden-yellow with a light purple, a crisscross of a very pale hue of blue, an eggshell color adorning the lower part of the figure and there is a smattering of black. While the dominant color in the first figure was golden yellow, the dominant color in this figure is blue and in exactly the same hue as the other figure. The figures aree connected at one place together, at the middle of the shapes of the top of the centerpiece. The overall effect is beautiful and exposes the rapport of the artist with the brush and canvas.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
