The Ascent of Love with Two Women that Lost their Heads

Oil on canvas

Classico moved to the next canvas; an image of a young man and woman collided horizontally and embraced each other in a cloud–filled sky. Other voluptuous, partially visible figures appeared to be floating or flying as if representing aspects of our divided selves. Two headless female statues in the garden referenced ancient Greek sculpture. The energy in her brushstrokes reminded Classico of the English artist William Turner. "It is a discourse on astral flying,” Alouisha explained.
