Painting of Woman
Feminist Art "She Reins"
My painting titled "She Reins" creates a dialogue about the changing the paradigm of gender stereotypes. The surreal composition depicts a stairway connecting two figures bodies symbolic of a unified journey towards positive change. The stylistic ephemeral and ambiguous forms of the bodies depict the freedom to move and transform oneself metaphysically and physically.
The vibrant color palette I choose to use in this contemporary oil paintings was inspired by advertising campaigns that target young adult audiences. By drawing reference to these popping colors I seek to grab the attention of the next generation in order to make a greater impact despite the fast paced culture of our nation.
This painting is available as the original painting.
