acrylic on canvas
A small girl in a school uniform gazes out at the viewer. In the background, the cross she sees enshrined everywhere. Two figures show images of women: the sternness of the nun; the benevolence of the Blessed Mother. These images are underscored by two blocks of text, which contrast her experience of early religious training.

I’m a big believer in applying representational approaches to painting as a way to convey inner states and experiences. Beyond mere depiction, representational art can tell a story; take a position; describe a moment in life.
