A Problem Shared is a Problem Halved
Acrylic on wood
'A Problem Shared is a Problem Halved' is a painting about how good it is to talk to each other. It utilises colour theory to illustrate how problems are diminished when shared, and considers the items depicted to be symbolic of how problems, once contained and stifling, are much easier to manage when outpoured and evenly distributed among two people.
It is presented in a straightforward and domestic way, alluding to the humble yet rewarding act of having a conversation with a friend.
