Father and son – 27 x 19 in / 68 x 48 cm

Difting appart – 19 × 27 in  / 48 x 68 cm.
Reds, oranges, warmth and closeness. Shades of blue, distance and peace. A child in search of his/her own self seeks distance, deliberately cuts the cord and walks away. Drifting apart, though painful sometimes, is how the path to adulthood is found. Wise and rare are those parents that are sensitive enough to know the right distance. Not so close to overwhelm, not so far that feels like absence.
