Elliott finds emotion in the machine.
Massively popular, this world famous classic has been published in countless countries across the globe, including on many magazine covers. The image is much loved and although only 40cm (16 inches) high, has achieved the second highest price for an Elliott work of art. “Kiss On Frosted Glass” is a highly emotionally charged work, something incredibly rare in contemporary art.

On the surface this is Elliott in a lighter vein, closer study reveals an effortless mastery. The vivid scarlet kiss is luscious, sensual and inviting, the surroundings cold, neutral, mechanical and lifeless.

“Kiss On Frosted Glass” is a highly emotionally charged work interweaving themes of inaccessibility, restricted freedom, love, romance and death; perhaps the kiss of death itself.

The image exemplifies Elliott’s exceptional use of colour and highly developed eye for composition. Again Elliott exploits the photographic medium beautifully, by creating a work of art impossible by any other means. The image is massively popular with girls and unquestionably a timeless classic.

The world has already voted so it would seem to be more than a worthwhile acquisition.

40 years on it is utterly timeless. The litmus test for all great art.

Much imitated. Never matched.
