Who is Union is Love?
Union is Love; a message, a human being and now an eccentric and emotive collection of works. Union is Love is a Sydney-based artist who has recently created forty-five paintings of faces that diversely represent humanity. His bold and abstract choice of colour instantly struck me when meeting all the faces in the collection. His message is clear, as one we can find love. The Pop-Art feel of Warhol yet the abstraction of artists like Picasso, remain a common thread in the vast array of canvases. Union dares you to connect with the people in his works and find peace and love in their eyes. Without the instinctive categorizing of race, gender and age, the faces in his work represent humanity and a greater love than surface interactions.
BYO Art has created a short video showcasing Union in all his passion and progress.
