The painting was made in the days after Denmark shut down and COVID-19 sent fear and selfpreservation across the world.
Originally from the hand of Vaughn Bodé and underground comic books the little guy calls from the lack of intimacy, hugs, and body.
He demands a hug - whatever the cost! And he shouts it out loud in Chinese and Italian.
There is also being 2 and a firmly drawn boundery with a hole in it - because a total lockdown is difficult, well almost impossible.
In a deep set black oak frame with discreet black inlays in the joints the piece floats freely behind the UV-70 True Colour Museum Glass.
Acrylic, pen, mixed media on paper.
