The ligher colored one is titled “Mysterieuse Beaute” (French)
Artist Statement:
In my artwork, I captured the elegance, beauty and artful fashion of a African Woman. Her dress is filled with the color Red – representing Love.
Also, it has pieces of a book that represents the history. I wanted to show as many fashion-beauty details as possible.
The fact that the classy woman doesn’t have a face, reflects a mysterious beauty.
The darker colored one is titled “Alive!”.
Artist Statement:
My mixed media artwork shows an indigenous woman covered in a blanket full of flowers. These flowers represent the life of a person, and the memories created.
The embroidered colored flowers reflect the past. All the beautiful memories a person lives. The glittery flowers represent the present. The moments a person builds.
he white flowers illustrate the future. All the wisdom and experience a person gets throughout her life.
