Innerfields painted a huge mural titled ‘Present’ for Art United Us. The mural depicts a woman hugging a white figure… the person she is hugging is not present physically. There is a sense of presence in the eyes of the woman and for the viewer of the painting. The image is in the balance between the presence and absence of someone. It’s telling a story about being close and missing something. The mural deals with desire and interpersonal relations.
The white arrow is important to the theme of the work and has many different levels of interpretation. One connection it makes is regarding the arrows of amor, that have the power to let people fall in love with each other. Another is the arrow has the potential to hurt physically or mentally.
The arrow symbolises many things and destinies and that was important to Innerfields that there is not one fixed idea and in line of interpretation to their artworks.
“The recipient is the one who creates a new meaning to the Artwork coloured by his experience and cultural heritage. One has the chance to get in a dispute regarding the aspects of the artwork he is most connected with. And hopefully we create communication and reflection among the spectators.” Innerfields
