Female Head 1

by rasher - mark kavanagh

I started this concept ten years ago but it never materialized. I painted on larger pieces of wood and the rasults were very raw and i vowed to return to this style at a later date. Ten years later i am revisting this concept again. My first attempt to approach this style again was in my 2010 exhibition Womb to tomb. My father having a stroke provoked me to reflect the effects of an organic shift of the human form when the body malfunctions and leaves a visable trace.You can see this painting on my website www.rasher.ie titeled Tricky. Female Head 1 is my second painting of this style.
