About "Bath Time"
An Indonesian mother tenderly bathes her baby under the tap. She is poor and the single tap indicates that there is no warm water. Despite this the child seems to accept his fate and submits to his fate with an open-palm gesture. I concentrated on the connection and flow from the mother[0x1]s face to that of the baby, and to his hand to create a triangle of intimacy. I used blue highlights throughout to add a .softness to the mood of the painting.
Having been born and brought up in Central Africa , I have always been humbled by the vast canvas and the infinite palette of hues, shades and colours that Mother Earth so reverently offers us. As much as the forever changing expansive skies, the never ending kaleidoscope of land and water, so too am I inspired by the fragility and expression of humankind, and it is all of these that form the basis of my subject material.
