There is a perceivable foreignness to be felt in observing a romantic relationship from beyond its intimacies, a distance which intuitively holds the intrigue and imagination of outsiders. In this work, Sveva imagined how this distant world, unique to her parents, may look by incorporating forms of the land which, she felt, gave visual substance to their respective ways of being. Her father, “a dreamer”, is accompanied by gentle sand dunes and with them, an openness to change and the new. Informing the personality of her mother, “an absolutist”, are the rigid barriers of steep mountains impossible to overcome. Together, however, as portrayed by the life-giving greens and blues at their feet, the extremes of their characters are balanced.
