ABOUT THE LIVING MUSE SERIES
This series tries to capture what it means to be a woman, to walk this earth as a lady, it celebrates the beauty and essence of being a lady.
"Art is expressive, nudity is a part of the whole, it can’t be separated from our very state of being, we are all it in the silence, in the quiet, behind closed doors, but very few are open to the expressiveness of that part, this very piece celebrates the liberation of one who understands the complexity of nature, its beauty and liberation as she is bold enough to submit to the state which she occupies".
This piece focuses on a woman who has refused to go quietly into that good-night-sleep at the end of each day but rather is bold enough to range against it with art, poetry and beauty.
MEDIUM- OIL ON CANVAS SIZE- 36” X 58” YEAR- 2020
I believe we are story telling beings and where there is none we tell one, her story has been well told by her, her beautiful expressiveness of herself and the great sense of imagination it heightens within the viewer, along side her beautiful poetry to go with it.
This series constitute of three  paintings that where completed over the period of 4-5 weeks, making up a total of about 250 hours. They are all oil on canvas, the images were distorted and fragmented making the canvas look like a ripped out page, this allows for the words and expressive poetry of the subject to be infused to the painting which heightens and gives more sense and meaning to the words written.
BEHIND THE SCENE
I believe great art exist because of their ambiguity, where things aren’t spelled out correctly but rather make space for difference in interpretation, in such a way it questions our conventional way of thinking and indeed, this paintings has achieved that.
