“While visiting a museum as an art student, I turned the corner into a room that had only one sculpture at its center. It was Constantin Brancusi’s ‘The Kiss’. Love can be a very complex and confusing experience, and yet, Brancusi summed up the utter joy and simplicity of it all in his whimsical abstract sculpture. In my interpretation, I wanted to capture something similar… the simplicity of delight caught within the complexity of love.” – Michael Parkes
