The Black Figures

JULY 2017

 
 

A collection of paintings, drawings, and prints exploring themes of femininity, nature, and empowerment through a bold black figure style. I was influenced by my grandma's Khokhloma collection, which I grew up admiring on my visits to her house. Khokhloma is a Russian wood painting handicraft style and national ornament known for its vivid flower patterns, red and gold colors over a black background.

Black and white sumi inks, printmaking inks, and watercolor on paper.
