The Painted Lady-3
Condition: No condition to report.
Description by Artist: The process of making these pictures where inspired by Andy Warhol and Henry Matisse. And yes it is based on culture, native woman and sexuality. I just see the painted lady as a warrior woman, who embraces everything about herself, even her sexuality. The “Painted Lady-2″ is a different portrait and arrangement of Cindy V. This is also collage. I get never get a photo shoot with some real native female dancers due to jealous boyfriends and the pride and arrogance of some of the dancers. They sort of just shrug you off or think I’m trying to pick them up, when in reality all I want to do is create art with their beautiful regalia and faces. But thanks to collage and Cindy V, I can now create the series I always wanted to create. – Riel Benn
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Third indeed a sensual representation of a Native Woman not only accepting her sensuality and sexuality but full in control and dominating.
