About the artwork
Against a surreal background of turquoise and cerulean blue where road and ocean meet the sky, a couple dressed in work attire hold hands and stand ramrod straight. And yet, they do not seem out of place in this strange plane of existence - instead, the relationship of solidarity between the two figures is further emphasized. Holding hands, their relationship seem to suggest one of assurance, love, warmth and hope. Always and forever, they assure each other; always and forever I will remain by your side.
