Girl with the Heart Tattoo
Piece description from the artist
Partly inspired by modern graphic arts, this piece contrasts a loud geometrically basic background with more subtle complimentary figure colors. The figure is separated from the canvas by a thick black outline, that further accentuates that contrast and pops her off of the canvas. A sense of movement is very important to the piece, making the figure appear frozen in mid-motion. One can almost imagine her swaying as she lifts or pulls down her shirt; the ambiguity of her intentions is purposeful, and blurs the line of eroticism in the painting.
