Talk to the Moon
Acrylic and Oil on Canvas, 8 x 10" , 2019, $475
My current work is an investigation of natural phenomenon, focused on the body and mind - exploring our biological and emotional systems, subconscious, and shadow sides. In the past couple of years, I have witnessed a general resurgence of an attack on the feminine principle. Whether it be against Mother Earth, in politics, or towards female power in general, it is palpable. I felt compelled to create images of female power and prowess. Using decorative patterning, geometric designs, and portraiture, I hope to reveal the complexity of the human experience, especially the feminine principle that exists in all people.
