Serpentine Eyes by katrinapallon Serpentine Eyes by katrinapallon
Apsaras and tribal belly dancers have recently become my favorite painting subjects, so you can expect more pieces akin to this in my future shows. This also serves as a preview to the painting series I will be putting up for the two-man show on April.

121.9cm x 121.9cm
Oil on Canvas
2012


"Serpentine Eyes" was for an all-women group exhibit organized by Altro Mondo - Arte Contemporanea in celebration of Women's Month. Billed “Women on Women,” the show mounts paintings, sculptures, installations, and mixed media works by a full roster of 11 women artists (myself included). The show opened last March 8, which also happens to be International Women's Day, and will run until the 30th.

You may read more about the exhibit and view details of the painting on my blog.

The word "gypsy" is an extremely derogatory term for the Rromani people... I encourage you to find a better word for your inspiration than a racial slur. Regardless, a beautiful image. (:

Thank you for that information. I, honestly, am not aware that it's a derogatory term. I'll come up with a new title for this piece. Thanks again!

Yay! Thanks for hearing my talk. Did you get to answer any of my trivia questions? Haha!

And thank you for the kind compliment on my work! This one's currently on exhibit at Altro Mondo (Greenbelt 5). It's best seen in its 4 feet x 4 feet glory so you can better appreciate the details. :ahoy:

I did not go upfront I'm too shy for that but I am a LOTR FAN OMGHJK sorry, I'll stop fangirling now.

Oh yeah, I'll go to that exhibit on my free time. I've learned lots on your speech. Nice! :) Keep up the good work!
