'Riding the Coriolis' by Jo Morgan by 

This piece reveres the strength of women. Although the seeming chaos may seem to be ready to spiral out of control a woman’s strength is a force to be reckoned with. I applaud their ability to hold all the strands of their lives and others to create a harmony and beauty.

This work was created using watercolour pencils (dry) on tinted and textured art board.

I use the medium which best expresses the subject and style of presentation that tells the story best.’
My portrayals of the fairer sex explore society’s perceptions of women in a light-hearted approach. Relationships also supply fascination and subject matter. The battle of the sexes was ‘never fairer fought’ than in one of these intriguing glimpses. The element of fantasy is a theme throughout my work giving the ordinary an altogether different slant.

    I feel two beautiful ideas in this: allowance, and integration. She is strong through allowing the chaos to flow toward its natural desire and also feeling her own integral part within the swirls, flowing through her hands in current’s effulgence. Your figures are so fun.

  • You got it! :) thank you, Jo
