Makes me want to know what they are thinking.
Really like the division and shapes of dark and light shapes/shapes.

Striking composition and imagery. Really makes a strong impact.

I also like it.
Reminds me of the German expressionist Otto Müller

I haven't posted on the Ab/Cont forum in some time, but I was quite struck by this painting. Looking briefly through your Facebook page I find that this particular painting strikes me as you most successful. There is a real strength in the simplicity and composition while the texture holds my interest. I agree that there is something that recalls Otto Müller... and other German Expressionists of the Brücke group. Nice work.

This one is really beautifully designed - the balance between realism and abstraction/distortion, the interesting negative shapes, and the big x that creates interest and movement in the bottom half. Lovely work and above all it has an emotional impact. WTG!

Compositionally, I agree with a bond towards Brücke... the intensity and intimacy of the two figures. Yet combined with the almost ethereal facial expression... little hint to what the figures are thinking or what this situation is about... Müller would not have painted that way. This triggers strong curiosity in me. Well done.
