New chain series

Connotations 1 and 2, oil and charcoal on panel, 10” x 10” 

I’ve explored the subject of chains (and other tangled things) in several works. They are interesting to me because of their range of connotations: bondage, connection, power struggle, wealth, and beauty. I think of the inner struggles we all face too. In this series I have chosen to emphasize the negative space with gold and pink, creating a suede-like, “feminine” softness that challenges the hard metal links.
