Michele Silk - Laurels Walk - 2017

Michele Silk – Laurels Walk 2017

Mixed media graphite and collage on Fabriano 150 x 106 cm

Michele references the struggle of women in Africa and the blind faith they have while walking blindly into the future , coming from the darkness into the light and colour . Laurel carries the flame of womanhood while the ghost of the past follows her never leaving her side thus the past is like a ball and chain around leg , yet still she steps forward with pain in her foot and leg,  as the future is full of sharp objects both hidden and visible .

This work was sold immediately and is part of a large collection in South Africa .
