Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

Did you know that it is believed that the "apple" Eve ate in the Garden of Eden was actually a pomegranate? "The Harvest" is part of Isis Rodriguez’ series RE-DIVINING EVE.

Growing up Catholic, I learned the myth of Adam and Eve: a moral story to teach children to avoid temptations, or there would be consequences. “Re-Divining Eve” is a re-definition a universal myth to remove its message of blame, shame, and guilt, replacing it with the divine. In the re-defined myth, Eve chops down the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and uses the wood to build a new world.

Why paint Eve as a cartoon? Though many consider the cartoon lowbrow or pop art, I believe the cartoon to be the modern classical figure. The cartoon is an elegant, minimalistic drawing of the realistic figure, and the realistic figure is just an over-rendered cartoon. I paint my characters in oils and pastels, using techniques of the great European masters to elevate the cartoon to the high art status it deserves.
