The Column Before the Storm

“The Column Before the Storm”, collage and acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas, 15″ x 30″ x 1″, 2012

Juxtaposing architecture and costume, this piece explores the feminine nature of the Greek Ionic column, and the curves. It also explores the columnar nature of a woman, an upstanding pillar of the community, the calm vertical that withstands social weather, and the female support role in society’s structure. Plus, she’s pretty.

She is a part of an architecture/clothing series that I got started in a collaborative effort with someone back in 2005 or thereabouts, and while the collaborative project fizzled, this painting did not.
