Passive Smoking

This painting is a new painting is heavily influenced by North American artists in it’s colouring and in it’s subject matter, namely the frisson that comes from human interaction, in the most apparently mundane settings. I loved this scene, as the man seems ill at ease and not sure whether to leave or remain. He may even feel guilty that he is kinda in ear shot of the couple’s conversation and may appear to be eavesdropping. He was there first and then the couple joined him, to eagerly gossip and have a quick cigarette break. They seem so comfortable in each other’s company compared to the man who seems very ill at ease, aggrieved at having to endure their their smoking and the drifting grey-white fumes.
