She Can See by ElionaZale She Can See by ElionaZale
This is another one of my works I completed in April.

I entered this into the De Anza Student Gallery,
the statement I wanted to make about this was that
as a people... we often look back to art in history, to tell
the stories of the past. We look towards art for cultures
who did not yet have a written language yet. We turn to
their art to get a glimpse of what their lives were like. Art tells the story of the people in their time, and that begs the question, we as artists, what are we supposed to paint? What are artists of our time going to say about the world we live in today?

I painted her... as thick and empirical as our heads can be sometimes, we often take the route of not caring, not seeing. we take the back seat approach.. oh its far enough away, it doesn't effect us... I painted a woman, shrouded in the American flag... she holds her palette close to her heart as she contemplates the things around her. She indeed can see.

Very powerful painting, with a purpose and well delivered message. (Too bad there is so much off the varnish in the photograph though.) Barrie

yeah... it bothers me... the painting is so reflective, I have been trying to get a clearer image. I enjoy the glossy effect in real life, but through photography it gets me shaking my fist.
