Title:”Crucible – Woman with Snake ”
Medium: Charcoal & Oil paint on board
Size: 40 x 60 cm
The “Crucible”- Series was forged while I was undergoing serious self reflection, reinventing myself, and dealing with past traumas.
The dresses speak to our traditions and moral fibre / foundations, while the symbolism of the animals reinforce my struggle with rebirth, transformation and moving forward.
Crucible: A very significant and difficult trial or test
Snake: Represents a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality and healing.
Pig: Represents determination, forward- moving and sincerity.
Rabbit: Symbolizes and vulnerability, desire, and procreation.
