• Oil paint on Wood: 40x120 inches


With or Without You explores the 'push-pull' behavior in love, a repeating pattern of ending and re-establishing closeness in a relationship. The painting illustrates the cycle of when one tries to pull away from a relationship they end up back in. It epitomizes emotional attachment, and how leaving a relationship is a hard task to face, or even more difficult staying out. Loneliness holds no pleasure; causing individuals to go back in to get back out.
