Duchess of Doom

Duchess of Doom

Mixed Media on Paper

12" x 18"

A colorful figure in a veil-like mask with the formation of swirling shapes is seen throughout the abstract mixed media on paper.


In the spring of 2020, as the anxiety began to rise due to the pandemic, I was not able to concentrate on my oil paintings. I made a series of works on paper to process all of the emotions. Figures in veil-like masks emerged among swirling shapes. The Duchess of Doom was made at the beginning of the pandemic. There was a sense of needing to be protected because we had no idea of what was to come.
