Original painting in oil on canvas
As dusk approaches a haze of rainbow rests on the horizon, but she does not stop to admire this spectacle. Her pace is steady and her eyes stare fixedly into the distance; there will be no rest today or tomorrow....the weight on her back is a constant. 'I carry you with me' she says without expecting a reply.
Paris Blanche Magenta Foot's paintings retain a unique and distinctive visual language, which is immediately recognizable and absorbing. Foot’s mixed media pieces are also brilliant; tactile and engaging - and quite touching. The faces of the pieces - caught somewhere between figuration, puppetry and debris – are reminiscent of the luminous faces of the films of the silent era, despite being based on personal source material culled and elevated from family photographs. Stylistically incongruent, the expressions of the figures seem sweetly unaware of what the rest of them are made up of.
