"Availability/Prices subject to change.

"A couple are captured in a moment of undisguised familiarity with the athletic poise of the woman suggesting an evening full of possibilities. The man's purpose is equally as clear, only he has taken the role of the supporting gentleman in this enticing tangle. It places the woman in a dominant position as she holds him with her alluring leg clasp and outstretched arm. The closeness between them is evident, but there is still a hint of divine battle going on as they play the games that have to be played when dancing the Tango. As with most of these dance pieces, there is a deliberate balance between implied carnality and genuine tenderness. This is usually best displayed by the attitude of the heads and also how their hands are placed. The sensitive manner in which the woman's hand is placed over the potent clutch of the man's hand on her rib-cage, is almost a synopsis of the entire painting."

Hamish Blakely

"As far as subject matter is concerned, I have always loved painting people, favouring glimpses of figures and anatomy. Even in the enormous, allegorical works of classical masters, I have always been drawn to confined areas of a piece - a spotlit area that reveals a rigid jaw line, or the twist in a turned neck. Often I like to have images remain that simple - paring down extraneous material to leave what feels ephemeral. Other times, I need more of a setting and the reward is in the discipline of being more representative. Ultimately what makes me work is that, despite all the wonderful breakthroughs and milestones I have experienced in painting over the years, I never feel that I have quite nailed it. There is always more to be done, as I think it is very difficult to measure what your potential is, only the gratification that you have not yet reached it."
