Appearances II
2011
oil and wax on canvas
48 x 36 in.
The more illusory forms of the Appearances paintings simulate the worldly beauty/ power found in ancient Eastern deity figures. Chinese Buddhist sculptures of Boddhisattavas, charged with the guiding of souls to perfection, reverberate with the worship and power vested in contemporary Western, female icons.
