Sanguine - BFA Thesis
Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, BFA Painting Thesis 2008
I looked, and I saw the earth in flames. Her face was nothing but red.
The color red is associated with people's passions, be they joyous or painful. It is the color of the very essence of life, it is our blood. Blood is unique in that it carries two opposite connotations, it can be the giver of life or the harbinger of death. The giver of life has always been a woman, and the earth has always been personified. "She" is essential and ingrained; her experience is elemental, powerful, sanguine. She is not without a face, she is in every face.
