Artist's Description

This was produced with oils on a stretched canvas. It was inspired by a dream that a former girlfriend had had. I translated the account into a work in reverence of her emotional experiences. Her head is submerged in the river as if she were drowning, and her body stretches through the receding landscape. It can be universally translated as a fertile woman of the earth, and (as I said) it holds very personal and internal connotations of her struggles growing up. I enjoy the sunrise, which allows the viewer to move in through the painting of her and then back, in an infinite dialogue between heaven and earth. It was painted in 2002. The original painting was purchased by a private collector.
