Artwork: The Journey
Artist: @vkp_a | @victoriakug
This painting began by me asking myself, " what does romantic love really entail." Especially with the focus on marriage.
The basic definition for marriage for me is; you are with the person for a long time. You hear of people who met when they were kids, high school sweethearts, in college/university, late 30s, seniors etc. There are so many different pairings. But why do some people have that genuine real love for one another? While others seem to have it in the beginning then lose it, others it never grows. It never sticks.
The answer I gave to the questions is: It is about being a team. You win together or lose together. If one of you is off in any form, you both are going to crumble etc.
If you look at the artwork, you will see the two figures at the front; that represents the wedding - the beginning and in the back; that is marriage - the long, long road with the two of you, doing your best to figure things out. The real part of love. And it is monochromatic, so there are no bells and whistles, distractions from your goals ( but as the viewer; you are drawn in, into the composition, atmosphere and meaning of the painting.
You are a team.
