Dora Maar: Lost at Sea

Dora Maar: Lost at Sea

mixed-media with found objects
20"x26"x 7"

This work was created for the invitational exhibition "Channeling Picasso," curated by Sue Ann Round, directer of the Michigan Artists Gallery in Traverse City, MI. For this exhibition, artists freely interpreted a painting by Pablo Picasso, entitled "Woman With Green Hat." My interpretation was initially motivated by the boat-like form of the green hat, combined with two found pieces of triangular plywood. Since the painting was created just after the beginning of WWII, the model, Dora Maar, displays a pensive expression with a mask-like appearance that suggest uncertainty, as if something is lost. These qualities are the primary inspiration for "Dora Maar: Lost at Sea."
