2020 Finalists

Michele ABOUD

Artist statement: This interpretation of ‘The lovers’ shows us ‘the times have changed’ with a sensitive touch, although nothing is apparent immediately.

Faces enshrouded, we are evoking mystery within our own psyche, taking time to see what we’re actually witnessing.

The inspiration was gathered from the repeated referencing over decades of the originator’s painting.

Attention has once again garnered focus in the 2020s, a century later.

There is a delicate reflection with its muted tones and gentle body language.

The purity of the image speaks for itself.
