Original painting in oil on canvas.
"I was intrigued by the two figures in the source image, they felt oddly choreographed, almost playful. I took them out of their original context, changing the background and overall colour to suggest the aftermath of some nuclear, chemical or biological disaster. NOTE: Unusually for me, I cropped and re-stretched this canvas to tighten the composition. The sides have been painted with a heavy white paint that has chipped away in places. It looks quite industrial and distressed which actually suits the subject."
