que mes sentiments t'accompagnent

The night brought strange thoughts and dazing drunkness, as the desert sun started setting, the cocktails hit us hard. The rays of sun were creeping behind the mountains, illuminating the valley, until all sunlight disappeared, and suddenly it became slightly chilly, even in the desert, so we moved to the heated bubble bath which was lighting up our faces in the complete dark as we started talking.

"Que mes sentiments t'accompagnent" is a phrase that is being used to express condolences, and it voices the thematic of the diptych it embodies: something dramatic obscure, distant and dark.

Sentiments #1 at one hand shows a contrast of a slice of rotten breakfast sausage and beans, of which the greasiness almost drops from the canvas, and a pearl close to perfection. Sentiments # 2 at the other hand portrays a female whose expression shows agony. She is surrounded by layers.

The collage at the basis of the diptych was originally made as one piece, hence the two paintings are indisputably intertwined; and even though they were produced separately, they find their glory combined.
