A bold statement of place and balance. Of femininity. The symmetry of the top of the painting empowers the figure to stand firmly on a small base. The implication in my mind was of the hidden strength and stability of rootedness. Deep roots.
The paint application ranges from transparently thin to sculptural opacity. The abstraction, when seen as an ancient symbol of the feminine, is less abstract. The birds stand as witness to the journey. A bold painting for a bold heart.
