Acrylic on canvas. 20in, round.
Amazons, mysterious female warrior, were recognized as heroines and embodied features like independence, courage, strength. This double portrait of an amazon is a combination of a deconstructed, sectioned ancient marble head and the real human who was the behind it as a model.
Inspired by the mythological Greco-Roman origins, these works of art are dreamlike superimposed views of expressive and sometimes sensual figures.
Like the immortal mythological heroes, my subjects remind us of the human ability to remain beautiful and noble despite de passing of time and damage it brings.
