My intent was to create an impression of the spirit that moves within the body. The picture is a composition of matt background and intense gloss figure. The background is somewhat somber and dark intended to allow emphasis on glistening foreground spirit. The ribbon-like brushstrokes are suspended within various body areas encased in clear resin. The resin imparts a feel somewhere between a living plasma and ether, in reality the naked eye cannot see. The background is a re-creation of classical wallpaper, nuanced with leaves gently falling. Finally a looming shadow falls upon the wall, subtly enriching an otherworldly effect I seek.
