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
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.
