Series : The Fall and The Searcher
This series of paintings is based around 2 female figures—The Fall and The Searcher. The figures are painted in different environments becoming fireflies, seeds, cocktails and armadas. There are repeated themes that allow me to juxtapose the two figures against Yin and Yang symbols such as bubbles and umbrellas. Bubbles float with temporary beauty, while umbrellas--a shelter when opened become a sword when closed.
