Lately I have been working on a series of paintings called The Women. I’m painting from old photos I find online. Some of the women have strong new wave / goth / beatnik styles. They’re people who love music and alternative culture, and who have created a distinctive image for themselves. They’re strong, proud and beautiful women. Some of the images I chose because they have other qualities I was drawn towards, such as sisterhood, or friendship. I’m projecting my own ideas about what’s going on in these photos, digesting them, and creating paintings that describe my own feelings. The photos are a springboard for my interpretation of what I feel about being a woman. I’m exploring my personal views about feminine beauty and power and sex and music and female relationships.
