Hands of pink
Drawn in ink
Never have seen a sink
Pink hands hide
What there does abide?
These hands are part of a series of hands and feet I have drawn which were originally inspired by the henna illustrations done on the hands of some brides.
These pretty pink hands that look angelic/perfect but what are they hiding? Are they closed over secrets, in fear, to gain control or …
The regularity of the design could be a mask of someone who wants to be anything but predictable, even or pink. Else it could be that the woman is trying to fade into the background.
They are drawn in gel pen on cartridge paper and then duplicated and flipped before the colour was enhanced in the computer.
