Caught in the Act

Caught in the Act
Photo Description:
The conflict of foreground and background in this piece creates a sense of ambiguity, causing the viewer to question the existence of the subject separate from her environment. The deep reds evoke feelings of anger, passion and energy, all intensified and frustrated by the cropped portrait. This painting was created without the use of the brush in an investigation of the mechanics of painting accentuating the textural quality of the paint.
