Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The 3 works created for the auction are a representation of the main themes and palettes I explore in my current work. A single still-life and the shadow she creates at the golden hour, a botanical portrait of a plant "in movement" as well as a still-life including fish, a key element to my recent works in relation to isolation.
