Tienie Pritchard - "Ayesha"
W: 260mm x H: 740mm x D: 450mm
This work is unframed
This work was inspired by Rider Haggard's novel "She". Ayesha (also meaning 'she') is standing in the sacred fire that will grant her immortality and everlasting beauty. She is receiving godly graces and is not burnt by the fire.
The nude human form is the basis of my creative motivation. The human body is rich in associations and when it is turned into art, it can be expressive of a wide range of subjects. I strive to portray the evolution of the human mind by illustrating different cultures em mythologies and as well as historical figures re presenting different eras in history. The interconnectedness between man and animal is also a favourite theme, illustrating the spiritual kinship between man and animal.
