Lust is such a weird concept to me because I feel it so rarely, and when I do I get so uncomfortable that I find myself running from it. In this piece I wanted to display the discomfort and magnetic closeness to the person/thing that comes with lust and longing. I made the focal point the characters’ eyes touching because whenever I’ve wanted something to the point of lust, I wanted a fabricated idea of that thing, which was so blinding. It was only when I found my head again that I could see them for who they really were.
