This painting is from a series Candyss painted around the time of the birth of her son. ‘SENSUAL BBQ’ is about the fire of life; the passion; the embers of love; the ebb and flow of life, the dance and passionate fire of falling in love and creating new life. The flames flicker and move with the the play of colour, movement of paint and spontaneous approach that Candyss uses here. The materials are used in an abstract expressionist style and the use of ash, sand, and drizzled enamel paint all add to the painting’s gestural quality. The sparks of contrasting colours – purples and blues against the dominant reds and orange take the viewers eyes dancing around the canvas.
