Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Black & White on Canvas.

Without is a stunning and majestic portrait of a well known Mexican artist, by Derbyshire based Scottish artist John McDonald.

Painted in black and white Without is a large painting 3 x 5 ft (1 x 1.5m), a real statement piece that will enhance any home or business environment.

Without is painted on high quality stretched cotton canvas, in artist's quality acrylic paints, is twice varnished and comes ready to hang.

Without depicts John's Mexican Heroine in the traditional Mexican Tehuana costume and jewellery that she loved to wear, gazing out, perhaps standing on an upper floor balcony with a window behind. The Mexican Heroine looks very much the beautiful revolutionary; she could be standing facing out over a crowd, almost Eva Peron-like.

Without is part of a body of work around the Mexican Heroine, with whom the artist has a very personal empathy. The themes are around brokenness, the function of creativity in transforming pain to beauty, and a revision of how the Mexican Heroine is viewed as an artist and a figure.

Without is a work about the power and beauty of the Mexican Heroine: without pain, without disability, without Diego... it is a tribute and a call to each individual who faces and overcomes barriers in life, and a testament to the indomitability of the human spirit.
