Stolen Kiss – it sounds like a movie, and indeed, in many movies, there is the moment when the hero and heroine indulge in that moment of a stolen kiss.
The artwork, Stolen Kiss, takes the moment out of the movie and places it into a world of the fantastic yet believable. The time is timeless, although the bicycle and the woman’s dress bring to mind a sense of vintage nostalgia, all the better because it transcends time.
The location is some mysterious alleyway in Europe, next to a restaurant from which, we wonder, the woman has just run as she sees the man standing outside. The moment is fleeting – the Stolen Kiss – and we as the viewer feel as if we have stumbled upon the scene without meaning to. We were just walking along, thinking our thoughts in the rain, and we came upon the couple.
They don’t know we’re here. We don’t want to move, because then they might notice. For us, as viewers, it is a mysterious moment as well, one to absorb quietly and thoughtfully.
Stolen Kiss is a fun exploration of the fantastic, the imaginative, the improbable but not impossible. It is a moment of timeless, vintage romance that takes us back to days when things seemed simpler, at the same time that they were less prosaic, less boring, less focused on the office cubicle.
As with any fleeting, instant moment, Stolen Kiss does not last forever, although the memory of it imprints upon us and leaves its mark. As a painting, it invites us to remember this moment, and make the romance and adventure of it part of our day. Any time, any place, one can experience the stolen kiss.
