Oil on Canvas
Sahasrara (Thousand Petaled)
Live painting from last weekends show at The National Black Theater (Harlem, NY). Every 9 seconds I painted on stage a woman has been in a domestic violence dispute. My intent was to create something that expressed finding empowerment to resolve her troubles and the best way I could paint was creating a woman who's facial expression reflects the stress from the issues women experience in U.S. society.
Through that stress she is able to find the solutions to her issues by tapping into a higher power to give her the blueprint for resolve. On top of her head is the Crown Chakra.
The crown chakra is associated with the transcendence of our limitations, whether they are personal or bound to space and time. In that moment of chaos through all forms of abuse or sexism her greatest resource is her.
