I gave my women an ornate and textured background using stencils, stamps and metallic paint. I loosely base the faces on photos found on internet or in my sketch book then i leave my brushes take over, the shapes and the color become my master.
My work follows an instinctive and logical path and each new series come from the last one. My lines are contemporary; i leave the distortions not seeking realism.
Those women belong to my private kingdom built piece after piece for 30 years.
The opening of the Women and Art Exhibition was opened on 6th March 2019 at the Fondation Suzanne Bastien Art Gallery, Pango Road. This exhibition will continue until 6th of April 2019 celebrating women’s talents in arts. This is was opened in collaborative with International Women’s Day on the 8th of March.
The Fondation Suzanne Bastien presents women’s art, craft, 3 dimension work and writing with personal comments from the artists. The exhibition talks of great things, traditional life, and the many issues for women. Art challenges the beholder; evokes feelings, stimulates creative thinking and gives pleasure. It leaves the voice of the artist to prevail, rather than the authorities. It allows strong comments and celebration, artistic freedom and discussion.
Here are amazing artworks displayed for public viewing:
