Jeune Amour, an original painting by Andrew Thompson

Date: 2004
Style: Acrylic on canvas
Size: 75cm x 60cm

"Jeune Amour" is probably the most sexual piece I've painted, but it has nothing to do with sex. As the name suggests, the subject is young love, and everything that goes with it – the vibrancy and fire and emotion.

It's a worthy piece, and slightly cryptic companion to the Symbiosis novel. At the bottom of the painting is a piece of prose taken from the short story "Bungundarra".

"Love is not a pallid smudge of pastels, but a vibrant explosion of colour that sucks the air from your lungs, and leaves your heart reeling in glorious wonderment and pain. Cling to it, embrace it, never let it go."
