Abaddon’s Locusts

 

 

 

 

 

Pastel on canvas.                                   22 February, 2018

 

 

This is the 2nd drawing in a Women’s Series that I am currently doing for 2018.

The series is titled ‘Matriarchal Heroines’, typifying the heroines of the everyday world

in which we live in. The exhibition at the end of this year is to bring awareness of an

egoistic culture focused on selfies and materialism. This series is to bring to mind that we are all human no matter

what car you own or new plastics you have bought.

‘Abaddon’s Locusts’ is about a heroine who braved her own fears and came out victorious from

bullying, deceit, treachery and cruelty that lasted for a span of about 2 years.

 

 

I WISH THEE WELL

 

 

 

 

 

I Wish Thee Well. Completed 19th December 2017

One of two works in the series.

 

This is a self portrait.

This conceptual drawing is about the emotional mixtures that evolve through the memories,

the happiness’s, the missing, and well wishing of when our children leave the nest,

and to venture out and become independent of their parents,

and finally making their own  life changing and life strengthening decisions.

SELF PORTRAIT EXORCISM

 

 

 

Pastel on canvas. Very large canvas approx. 1 metre x 1 metre.

This is another conceptual piece regarding the constant self evolution we go through,

using props and masks for a guise while we metamorphosise into a changed and altered human being- forever evolving.
