The life force
A new self portrait with an allegorical twist. Named The life force, for my father who used to call himself by that name, only half joking. He was something of a character with lots of energy and also had a lot to say! It also reminds us that we are all connected, the life force is strong in all of us, including plants, constellations, all aspects of nature. Recognising our unique ability to maintain the health and beauty of nature.
The colours are vibrant and strong with a whirling movement around the figure. I am wearing a beautiful dress of colours with a plunging neckline because I don’t get to wear one in real life.
