Intimacy Studies

The Intimacy Studies are a series of paintings exploring the cavities and fraught emotions associated with love, attachment, intimacy, desire, and loneliness using surreal imagery.
 

Each painting is associated with a series of evocative words to help guide the viewer's interpretation. Björk's music is a major influence on this painting series, and as such, each painting is paired with a corresponding Björk song. It is recommended to listen to the song while viewing each painting.
