Acrylic on canvas, 2020, 36 x 51cm
My first painting on an oval shaped canvas. a spontaneous portrait using mainly primary colours, (red and blue paint) that then evolved into a broader palette.
The expression of the imaginary figure and the poetic symbolism of the winged heart is what this artwork is all about .
The heart is modelled on the colourful, striking Mexican metallic hearts, inspired by Catholic religious folk art.
The heart represents the soul and sincerity, truthfulness, charity and love. The wings (which are highlighted with gold metallic paint) represent speed, elevation, aspiration divinity and transcendence.
Then again the painting as a whole is all about FREEDOM: freedom of expression, similar to the kaleidoscope of colours and patterns crafted around the border of her skin
It was after all created in a highly spontaneous way ; as it began by me finger painting to get the overall gesture and placement of the head and bust. The first installment of this artwork was done with 2 colours and no brushes !
The sides of the canvas have been painted and adorned to extend out from the painting on one side. Framing, though optional, is not required.
