Love will linger like poison in the veins – Soey Milk

I am pretty sure as a teenager I moped about like this all the time.  In fact I am probably prone to the odd day now and then still…and I am far from being a teenager.

Soey Milk presents us with an amazingly beautiful, photo realism oil on canvas painting.  The detail is sumptuous, from the swathes of material which adorn the hapless lovers, to the detail in the lace work of the top the girl is wearing just adds to the realism.

We see a girl in the arms of a skeleton, this could be seen in a few ways, the love has died, as in the emotion and she is clinging on to the memories, a peek of her former self peering through the material, pale in comparison to the focal point.  Or we could look at the literal sense, her partner passed and unable to live on still clings to the bones of the former physical being.  Personally I prefer the symbolic analogy and it ties in better with the title of the piece.

She is adorned with white poppies, a symbol of peace, which ties in beautifully with the look on her face.  Peaceful in her resignation to the situation, and not wishing to change it.

There is a patch of three leafed clovers at the elbows.  These usually symbolise the holy trinity, but in this case, I think it is symbolising faith.

This painting does a tremendous job of conjuring emotion in the viewer, and Milk’s work is known for this delicious and realistic presentation.
