I tried to capture the innocence and fragility of the feminine mystique. A fair ginger maiden with closed eyes and a slight smile is standing full-frontal nude and emerging from a dense thicket of jungle foliage. What is this delicate creature doing exposed in such a vulnerable and unlikely place? Why does she seem so content and unconcerned? The reason lies behind the fact that she is being embraced and protected by two very large and dark masculine hands coming into the picture from the front. They are gently cupping her breasts. In this piece I wanted to mix races between black and white and say it is OK to cross over racial lines and embrace and protect each other regardless of color. This was the first piece I used all curves to construct the geometry in the form of sine waves and curved tetrahedrons. By replacing one nipple with a geometric facet, I was able to illustrate the interplay between the morphology and the central image. It provides a back and forth between the geometry’s purely utilitarian purpose of constructing a credible three-dimensional crystalline surface and the ornamental purpose of creating interesting objects within the painting’s subject matter.
