Because one day we will be free

Lipstick paintingThese paintings take their cue from my Swimming at Night series. The blue is from lipstick given to me by a friend, as well as eyeshadow from Dischem. It has a similar texture to lipstick and I love the contrast of the blue with the intense red. I’ve used birds and fishes before, and I’m drawn to the sense of floating in the sky and in water because of the sense of weightlessness and freedom these evoke. So these works (which are intended as a diptych, but make sense individually) are allegories of freedom from the pain and suffering of the world.
