Celebration of Femininity

Celebration of Femininity
(4x6 inches/10x15 cm)
In the series: "Voor jou mijn kind"
(For you my child.)


(Loreena McKennitt- Ancient Pines)

I really love designing and playing around
with these simple paleolithic kind of figures.
I used a couple of my former figures in a new setting.

Normally my art evokes emotional extremes with saturated colors and lots of texture.
In this work I toned down my vibrant colors in favor of a black and red palette.
I composed a grid-like structure, and filled them in with these small B&W anthropomorphic shapes.
I incorporated a white figure on the black matting, part of the celebration.
Of course there's a lot of symbolism in each of the paintings.

This one was a gift to a friend
who helped a lot of women how to celebrate their femininity.

I love the Contrast between the red and black. The design is wonderful.

The formality of the squares is set off by the whimsical lines. Then there is the suggestion of anarchy off to the side. Very intriguing.
