I love seeing my paintings in their new homes!! Thank you @winstonlee.art for sharing this pic of my painting "I Do Not Know My Enemy (Girl)" 👼💪 in your amazing collection! 🙏 She looks so pretty in her float frame! 😻👍
These portraits are of a child that is posed to defeat the "enemy" of this world (the fighting poses mimic those of Japanese action heroes) and addresses my own questions like, "Who is our true enemy? Why do we choose to fight, and who to kill?" The pose in this piece is inspired by #SailorMoon, specifically a pose she makes when she says, "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!" I painted her for my recent solo show #MementoMori @coreyhelfordgallery.
