Art Description

Painting: Pencil, Acrylic, gold leaf, acrylic medium on Canvas.

This painting is a comment on the ambiguity of gender. What started as a portrait of a young transgender woman resulted in a much bigger story. I chose to portray Neah in the centre of an intricate web of symbols in an attempt to convey a desire to escape alongside a contradicting desire to keep what was dear to her.

The painting technique I've used here resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish. I start with pencils, pastels, and varnish. After that, I paint a lighter layer with acrylics and finish with a couple of thicker layers using a combination of mediums, often acrylics and oils, but sometimes gold leaf and inks.
