“L’Africaine” (The African)
Acrylic paint, spray paint, pennies, newspaper, colored paper, Kraft paper on canvas
From “The Women Series,” “L’Africaine” (The African) is a rooted Woman who immigrated by choice or obligation. No matter how far she climbed, she forever stayed connected to her soul. Her motherland, considered a third world continent, is home to unparalleled personages, spectacular landscapes, the nucleus of hospitality, generosity and affection. Madiba, and a glimpse of his extraordinary life, takes the center stage of the canvas. Poems, the music of my pen.
