My art project is inspired by the works of abstract expressionist Willem de Kooning and his Woman series. His portrayal of women left him subject to much criticism. The way in which the woman in my painting is portrayed is very different from de Kooning’s. It is meant to illustrate how women relate to nature and their delicacy, and how this sense of delicacy is sometimes disrupted by outside forces. I enjoyed this process very much. I also learned that I can be very adaptable as an artist.
