figment

18" x 22.5", watercolour, 1998

Here I managed to make the matrix into a sort of halo, which I find an interesting framing motif, despite (or because of?) the religious connotations.


Preliminary sketch.

I'm not sure why I posed her arms like that...maybe it was a subconscious need to paint someone doing the Safety Dance.

The title comes from the song "Figment" by Michael Penn from his 1997 album Resigned.
For other background info on the title, see my post about evade (featuring the same model and her arms).

This painting was part of Operation: Waterstorm.
