“The Couple” relates to the viewer in larger than life scale at a height of 8 feet and a width of 7 feet. The male and female figures have their backs to each other creating a moment of tension. The art of relationships, it is a fine art indeed
The neon for this artwork was appropriated from discarded commercial signage, none of which had figurative elements. The discarded and refurbished elements came from a Hallmark storefront sign, a Taco Bell sign, and a Red Dog beer sign. There is a certain irony here that shouldn’t be missed. This work of art is the forerunner of a series I hope to continue.
