Ready to Hang
This is the fourth painting in a series of eight. I did this piece because I liked the juxtaposition of the two subject matters. The strength of the modern woman, yet the delicate nature of her features and the mythos of the fragility of the female form against the ancient meaning of the headdress. How every feather and bead was earned and what they stood for.
As with all my paintings, this is gallery wrapped, the sides are painted, it's wired and ready to hang.
I'm a Denver based visual artist best known for my larger scale canvases. I tend to work in natural-realism and abstract genres; as well as dabble in the pop genre occasionally. I studied under Amy Métier at Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver in the 90's. I've participated in multiple group and solo exhibits to date in Denver, Manitou Springs, Cherry Hills and Miami. I am the owner of Bitfactory Gallery and Bitfactory Studios and my artwork was used as the album cover for the Carolyn’s Mother album Fridays and Other Small Tragedies, as well as for the upcoming single Boys Like Me and two albums Recovered and Recovering by Mike River.
