Lady and Her Dog was the first painting Shizico was able to paint after Favor, her late dog-son, died. It took Shizu 100s of days to paint and work again after losing Favor. This painting is to relive the frozen moment of their embracing, based on a photo taken a month before Favor died. (2017)
The charcoal drawings of their hands holding and intertwined, the raw energy of the markings of Favor's coat contrast with the thick textured hairs of Shizu and the misty blue of the garment and the air around them. The contrast of these textures and colours describes the separation between two worlds, a universal feeling of human nature. Arts turn grief into a reunion through an artist's hands, making art to create a 3rd space beyond this synthetic universe we are living in.
This edition is made with the finest finishing on Aluminium, ready to hang.
