The Goddess

Acrylic on nylon paper
248.92cm x 167.64cm

Decorated like an Aztec icon with silver necklace and breasts. Red lines like sunrays emanate from her head but her face is obscured by black confusion - her mind is in turmoil. This part of the series is more like Keith Haring's outlined, simplified figures than the earlier, despairing, floating figures. The pose, arms uplifted, could be aggressive, dancing, surrendering (sometimes I am reminded of the chalk outline police draw around dead bodies..). The colours are vivid and bright. It is one of the biggest of the figures in this series, over 8ft high.
