ARTISTIC STATEMENT

“Stripping Layers” (Acrylic – 1991)

The style of painting is highly emotional and bold, thus capturing the energy of the model. The painting “Stripping Layers” was created as a statement of society’s judgement of individuals that look different; be it because of a style, skin colour or a belief. It is how an abuser can make a woman feel, one who has felt the strike of a man’s hand and survived it. The painting’s haunting features allow the viewer a glimpse of the internal world of an abuse victim.
