Rounding up “ Safe Space”. As the title suggests this piece is my reflection on the current political climate. I usually don’t explain “the meaning” of my work but I feel the need to emphasize that this is more than a “pretty picture”.

Duality forms one of my recurring themes & it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of it in here.
The wings are a combination of the male & female grouse, a bird renowned for camouflage. They spend most of their time on the ground, not traveling far. The red wing tips, “fingers/ hands” refer to the first drawings of men, to the need to create but also to bloodied hands, the will to destroy. The feathers form a shelter to protect but also the exclude; a bubble so to speak. The outer form of the wings refer to the swastika, a symbol of peace in some regions but to most of us a symbol of horror. A suggestion of history repeating itself.
The covered face stands for protection but also suppression, exclusion & indifference. It also suggests religion with all its facets.
I tried to give the features a non distinctive sex, to emphasize the androgynous theme, which started with the wings.
The coldness of the skin suggest a “dead to the world” attitude & the fact that the person is “Caucasian”, confront me with my own struggle with race/racism.

This piece is my contribution for the “Winter Flock” exhibition The Convent Philly starting 10 Feb 2017.

“CEREMONIALS”

Part two!

My favorite song from Ceremonials has to be Landscape, or Shake it Out (can we just appreciate the lyrics from Shake It Out?) It’s been a lot of fun making these.. :)

Worked on some more roses. This color, “Fire Alert”, is now my favorite color. It has great coverage. This is going to be really awesome. #art #acrylic #artist #artwork #artworks #artstudio #painting #artoftheday #portrait #paint #wip #workinprogress #instaart #instacool #instadope #instagood #instafresh #urbanart #blackart #inspiration #motivation #Love #abstractart #abstractpainting #abstractartist #artshow #timelapseart #timelapsevideo #artvideo (at The Temple)
