Okay… I hesitate to comment on this piece. But what is it to worship? Within the pages of my beaten old Webster’s Dictionary, the word “worship” – in part – includes “intense love”. Given the times, I just have to wonder. More than wonder, I painted this diptych. [Added note: I used Gelatos with water and all depicted was almost entirely eyeballed – without rulers, etc.]
I was drawn to a tunic featured in the April 2016 issue of Elle. Although in this painted diptych, I’ve butchered it beyond recognition – with much due respect to photographer Liz Collins and the tunic’s designer, Michael Kors. Furthermore, this garment isn’t actually diaphanous – in that I had taken what was brown suede and then interpreted it in a very different way.
