"Pick Your Poison: Great Muses of the 20th Century"
My aim with this series is to expose the relationships that happen between artists and their truest muses. I am focusing on artists that reigned during the twentieth century. This time period fascinates me because of how the figures depicted are essentially ghosts; most are now dead or very old but their energy is still present in their contributions to the arts. I am using my personal interpretation of the word "artist." By this, I mean that I am painting a broad spectrum of artists; great actors and actresses, 2D and 3D artists, musicians, and writers are included. When I paint I focus on the energy of the relationship between a particular muse and artist. My aim is to depict that energy conceptually by utilizing color and composition.
