Figure It Out
I made this piece for a show at the NH Institute of Art. I didn't get accepted, but I was glad to have the motivation to create something new! Ironically, the show is called "Figure It Out" - and I couldn't quite figure it out! Abstract, expressionistic nudes are not really my thing. But this piece was a blast! It's called "Create/Creation" and I was thinking about the female form as two, almost opposite objects. So one side has the artistic form and the other side has the creation, or mother-y, side.
This is a close-up of one of my favorite parts. I altered a large "worry doll". Perhaps a worried muse? :-) Who knows?
