Graham completed this surreal/abstract painting (below) in art school in 1997.

This artwork began with a painting of two separate models (male and female), in two separate studio sessions. They are bond together in unity by the entwining of forms. Vine like forms surround, entangle and further fuse the two individuals.


Creating the Oil Painting


The artist used the original under-painting of the models as the basis for a full
scale artwork. The forms were abstracted and surrealized, but still recognizable as figures. Graham kept the basic forms of the body to accomplish this task, distorting and molding the forms.

Artwork by Graham Matthews

He combined bright and contrasting colors, obvious erotic symbology,
and entwining forms all together to produce a superb masterpiece -
a painting that tells the story of two lovers joined forever.

Meaning of the Oil Painting


Who could they be? Adam and Eve? Romeo and Juliet? Tristan and Isolde?
Odysseus and Penelope? The artist does not tell us this, and it does not matter.


The couple embodies everlasting love and a closeness that spans eternity.
