LOVE 2

What is foreground and what is background?

LOVE 1 and 2 shows a couple embraced in a hug. The foreground figure is the female, her back to us, fully exposed. She rests gently against the male figure, whose body is partly obscured by hers. It could be a dance, or just an intimate moment. The intertwined bodies and the details of their athletic bodies form a unit that fills the entire picture. This unity, however, is broken up by three stripe-like forms extending across the picture. As with a torn poster, a golden silky fabric with waves and folds is exposed like a second dimension. What is the foreground and what is the background? Small butterflies hover over the entire space and add to the disorientation. The eye finds no peace and must continue to search for meaning.
