REALISM FIGURATIVE

 

I started working with the "Milk" series in 2016, after my ”Fallow and Fire” exhibit at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. There were some themes that I wanted to keep exploring, especially the ones that had stories attached to them. This painting is one of them. The central figure in the piece is based on a photo shoot I did with a young woman whose background is full of interesting stories. The narrative was what was important and I didn’t want to let identity interfere so I altered her appearance somewhat.
