A note about Roma

Updated: Jul 16


This painting was created in 2012 Titled 'Roma' she is a rare nomad, a wanderer. Many cultures have traditionally been nomadic, but traditional nomadic behaviour is increasingly rare in industrialized countries. The idea evolved as I painted her, influenced by the many festivals & parties I attended that summer, where id met many travellers/roamers along the way who inspired me. I painted her dress using my stylised butterflies, the rest was purely allowing my imagination to run wild and flow intuitively. Roma is painted with 4 layers of oil paint and the butterfly wings are mosaic'd with gold leaf. Her size is 139cm x 78cm.
