This is an earlier painting (completed in 2009 and reworked in 2017) when strong feminine characters from mythology featured in my work. Painting three maidens largely intuitively, it was not until I finished that I saw them to be representing tribal, Indian and Greek goddesses.
I have used collage throughout this painting such as a patterned paper serviette, newspaper and vintage fabric.This is one of my favourite pieces because of how boldly I applied the collage whilst still achieving harmony with the paint and delicate layering. A technique that suits the grace and strength depicted by these feminine guardians.
