This original figurative painting depicts two repeating images of one woman. How many words are there to describe a woman, to describe what it means to be a woman? How many words does a woman have to listen to before she can focus on the words she wants to hear.
WORDS is a painting that evolved from a live modeling session. I have a particular passion for painting the figure, it is an exercise that always evolves and I don’t feel I will ever reach a point where I have painted enough figures in my lifetime. I also have a particular fondness for typography, playing with letters as abstract shapes that often times are complete words.
In this painting, the letters that spell WORDS reference many thoughts and ideas; too many words, not using the right words for what you are trying to express,the ability to speak out loud what you might truly be thinking and the idea of communication.
