Karp, Naomi


Oil on Board

12x12 in



This painting represents the blossoming of a faceless, vaguely formed figure into a vibrantly colored woman with a beautiful face coming forwards towards the viewer. I painted this work over the course of many weeks of Zoom figure painting sessions featuring models from all over the world. As I layered one woman's shadowy image on top of another, I realized that I was representing the emergence of women from anonymity and passivity into strength, clarity, purpose, power and beauty. The emerging form retains some ambiguity and mystery, but she is becoming more organic and real as she blossoms. And the pyramid of women behind her are solidly supporting her as she grows.
