Matriarch Chabine Famsendor. Ink on bristol board and digital color. 20 in. x 29 in.
I am working on a fiction and art project that is essentially a historian’s journal from the distant future collecting snippets of significant events, anecdotes, biographical details of important figures from his time. It’s a 20-30 page project that is mostly a world-building exercise for me. The primary locale is Famsendor, a matriarchal empire set 1,000 years from now in the Southeastern US. This particular painting is also a study of the self-portrait of the neoclassical artist Marie-Gabrielle Capet.
