Striking oil painting on canvas inspired by the Flappers of the Jazz Age, portraying a surreal depiction of a woman wearing a soft throw and an elegant dress in a minimalistic interpretation of cubism. 'New Woman' is based on the subject matter of feeling oppressed and being judged as too difficult or too opinionated and fighting this to reinvent oneself to stand tall and proud. The painting within a painting is symbolic of being unafraid to live an unapologetic life being authentic and expressive, for a voice to be heard even when silenced. Completed in contrasting colours of pale pastel colours and vibrant deep earth tones, soft and tense brushstrokes to intensify the effect of impasto impressionism with elements of abstract art.
