Beauty exists in many dimensions. In the case of Helen of Troy, a war was fought between large armies over her beauty.
In this piece, I captured three expressions of feminine beauty – as I see them. In the top right corner, you see the backside of a woman, with black/white used to display her body.
The black/white is used to symbolize indifference to good/bad, right/wrong. She simply remains. Present. Still. Wild.
In the center of the canvas is a red figure, which symbolizes the battle one must fight as they pursue love. In the center of the piece is an expression of a dragon, breathing smoke.
On the left-hand side is the figure of a woman, cloaked in a purple robe.
She’s covered in beauty, while remaining behind the dragon – yet, a part of it.
