Acrylic on canvas.


I created work that portrays strong emotions, personally, and societally represents and perhaps confronts the "traditional duties" of women. I definitely think hands tell the story of human beings and are very powerful imagery when representing the human subject. The dark colour scheme offers a sense of drama that one would not usually associate with such mundane, simple tasks.

This image portrays a hug, representing feelings of love and comfort as well as the "woman's duty to nurture".
