Lady Libertine By CAM. 48″x48″ Acrylic on Tile Board

Lady Libertine 48″x48″ Acrylic on Tile Board with Black Frame, December 2013.

Lady Libertine is a painting of a Native American Statue of America. The disfiguration of attributions on the face reminds me of classic works by Picasso. Being that Lady Libertine represents a Native American symbol, welcoming settlers; she is wearing a head dress unlike the crown worn by the Statue of Liberty. I outlined the entire painting with white; this is a step I took after I finished the painting to access highlights. Lady Libertine is skinny and is meant to represent many models around the world. The colors orange, pink and green combine really well. This is New York art; the vertical lines are buildings in an abstract form. This is the second painting in a new series of paintings I started creating in December 2013. The book reads Poverty Vacancy Goldish Birthed Freedom” which are all seven letter words. Goldish is a made up word that indicates how many explorers came to America in search of gold. Lady Libertine is a representation of the Statue of Liberty in an abstract form. It’s an example of the great hopes that America had to offer before present such as, potency, vacancy, gold, born citizenship and freedom! There’s only one life worth living.
