The painted lady, Acrylic ink, spray paint, oil paint, and gold leaf on canvas 86 x 60cm including frame.
Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?
The painted lady has tattoos that cover her body. They symbolise a series of scars that emerged over time from various life experiences. The flower that she loosely grasps is a reminder of the fragility and impermanence of life. There is an awareness that even though this person carries trauma the essence of her is untouched and she is able to transform to a heightened awareness.
