A childood dream….evoked

Posted on Updated on

I know I said I was finished before but in true Artist style I painted over elements of my two new pieces and fluorescent pink is predominant in each.

I kept on looking at them and thinking they needed a lift, need a splash of childhood (this could be created using a gendered colour).

This fluorescent pink instantly takes me back to childhood admittedly I wasn’t your standard Barbie playing little ‘Princess’ I loved the idea of being a hero female knight, I played with ‘My Little Pony’ as well as owning a sword & bow and arrow made for me by my grandfather, I was still feminine and ‘girly’ but aspired to be a strong woman…a hero.

 

Now anything Kitsch…anything showing vintage dolls makes me feel nostalgic, it takes me back to this place where anything is possible, I was free to dream and safe…..
