'Someone's Daughter ' - Entry for Moran Art Prizes 2012

BY Psari | 13-Jun-2012
The flowers are part of the idea of the child - adulthood play and not a botanically correct image. In fact most of the painting is painted very loosely as not to distract from the idea. A flower or leaf painted to precisely would distract and draw attention to the fact that it is painted so well. Only the eyes should capture you, the viewer and arrest you, so that all else just becomes a play in time and space. PSARI 2012
Oil on canvas 168 x 122 cm
