I started a series of miniature acrylic paintings about a year ago and am happy to say they are finally finished! They are 9 canvases in all and done entirely by hand, without using trace lines underneath, to maintain a “primitive art” feel, raw and untamed.
The inspiration for this series was African tribal scarification, which leaves bumpy scars on the skin’s surface, like a texture. Many of the patterns used for scarification (dots or lines) are evident throughout the series, but I expanded them to include other forms of “decoration” since I realized that so many different objects used to adorn the body are also similar in shape, texture and form. Some of the paintings are reminiscent of Masai beaded jewelry and also Henna designs, used by many of the Islamic and Hindu populations of Africa. Each object, design, tattoo, form and shape comes together to accomplish one goal: beautification and adornment of the human body…. to celebrate its mystery and it’s unique beauty!
While I do not wish to sell the originals shown below, I am selling this series on commission. Available on gallery wrapped canvases, at any size you require. prices will be based on canvas size and design/s chosen and will include labor and materials. shipping based on client location.
