My Themes: Figurative Paintings-The Modern Goddeses
My Themes: Figurative Paintings-The Modern Goddeses I am inspired by human relationships, especially the role of women. From early in my art career I have explored the recurring theme of women: Mothers-, I had a mother and I am the mother;Sisters-, I have three sisters;Daughters-, I am a daughter and I have two daughters;Aunts-, I have/had aunts and I am an aunt;Wives-, I’ve been that too (a few times); Lovers-, oh that too, but that’s a different story and that is my personal story. And of course Friends- My work reflects the love, mystery, sensibility,sensuality, sociability and solitude of all of these, I call them the Modern Goddesses. They have anonymous faces and fluid bodies, they transcend reality and express the subtle nuances of life.They reflect the graceful movements of human emotion, they exude warmth, charm and joy. The element of whimsy and fantasy is especially expressed in the way I paint my Goddesses. My paintings celebrate the Love that resides within these Modern Goddesses. And I honour them all.
