The Brooding and Complex Cheerful Sun
A portrait in mixed media. The robe and frame symbolise insights into the sitter’s personality and background. There’s a contrast between the formal gold frame and abstract mixed media robe. The frame represents traditional and conservative values that have been passed through family generations. The robe in contrast is playful and quirky, showing a contemporary and indervidual view of the world which is very different to the family and is owned entirely by the sitter.
