Drawing from the figure, inside out.
Summer Sleeping, upside-down portrays the beauty of a woman sleeping and waiting for the season to change. Referencing Flaming June by Sir Frederic Leighton, part of a series of works inspired by the Master's and the stylistic
period of Romanticism. I chose to turn the figure upside-down to feel the discomfort of the body and connect more to the inside and how it relates to the outside world.
My pieces express an emotion, state of mind, or a moment past by infusing line, shape and figure to convey a story a piece; with a beginning, a middle, and an end. I capture
moments of my life, or elements from historical paintings that resonate with our times and help inform our future. It’s this emotional resonance that I draw upon in my work.
