The Emotions collection was created to capture the range of human emotions in paint and canvass. Necessarily abstract in style, they mirror the indistinct form, but palpable energy and impact, of the emotion being explored. Joy of Youth captures the essential vibrancy and flow of the energy that exudes from youthful vigour. Each multi-coloured stroke the energetic engagement in something newly discovered, petering out until again something new is encountered. Combined they create the canvas that defines the fledgling person.
