Inheritance, 2007


This is a painting I am very fond of. It is about the heart problems that exist in my immediate family. The hearts are partially derived from medical drawings and partially from my own interpretation/ imagination.

It has been described as everything from an uplifting image to a disturbing image. To me it looks like a shipwreck with hearts in a current. This sort of just happened; all I really knew when I started painting is that I wanted it to focus on three hearts and for it to be a kind of family portrait (hence the oval canvas).
