A standing male and female figure are either coming together in an emotionally charged embrace, or are pulling apart after such an embrace. The moment is full of affection and feeling, but it's not clear whether they are reuniting after a prolonged separation, or must now part after being together. This ambiguity is intentional as well as full of tension, and alludes to the elusiveness and transient nature, as well as the universal predicament, of love.
Influences, among others, include Max Beckmann, Edvard Munch, Bob Thompson, George McNeil, Richard Diebenkorn, David Park, Francesco Clemente, R.B. Kitaj and Willem de Kooning.
