Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Pencil, Ink, Plastic, Paper on Canvas, Plastic, Paper, Sound.

Collage part of an Ensemble: This Collage is intended to be viewed with this particular piece of music. Play and view on my site.

This collage includes original music by New Zealand composer Josh Dawson, a personal friend who allowed me to include his music in my art. This is different music to the music on the player on my site (sound available from Spotify separately to this collage) that is part of the ensemble.

This is one in a series I am creating about turning toward. Turning toward is an important shape in many successful relationships.

“One of the greatest predictors of your relationship’s success is your ability to turn towards each other, constantly developing your bond by making an effort every day to reach out to your partner and accept their bids for emotional connection. We have found that the majority of conflict in relationships is the result of turning away from and against these bids.”(1)

So my painting here, (and my upcoming artwork) is about this turning towards, rather than away from a partner.

“Playful bids and enthusiastic efforts to turn towards each other result in heightened levels of positivity during conflict discussions. They also help you to build up your emotional bank account, maintain a strong and healthy bond, and bring the fire back into your romance.” (1)

The shape of turning towards eachother has several views. I’ll paint some of these over the next month and a half.
