This artwork depicts the complex and multi-layered relationship between men and women. Is the woman really seen? Standing in a powerful pose, as if defiantly standing against the notion that relationships between men and women are confined by a set of rules and expectations. The figures stand apart, but the distance between them speaks volumes of the struggles that they each face in forging an authentic relationship that acknowledges their differences, but also celebrates them. Creating a meaningful connection that transcends boundaries. The subtle balance of power and respect, joined in solidarity and understanding. Making a bold declaration: that relationships between men and women can be the haven of one’s true authenticity, when each side honors and respects the choices of the other.
