About the artwork
This piece is part of a series of 9 works on the theme of personal curation, reinvention and identify formation. The series cycles through distinct stage and forms, featuring the same fictitious feminine face.
This particular piece is part of the rediscovery phase that occurs during the messy, traumatic, but enlightening process required to create a new concept of who we are. Part of the image are hidden, parts seem incomplete, areas of the work feature thickly applied paint hiding flat un-embelished areas and small streams of gold are found; surprises among the chaos.
In this affordable piece there is beauty in the chaos. Generous layers of high-quality paint give the work a luscious finish.
