Heavy Shoulders in Sunset

30"x40", oil on 1" canvas.

Oil painting of a woman stretching her cybernetic arms. The strain from the metal weights is seen in the tightness of the shoulder muscles. The sunlight is intense against the cool shadows of the bedroom. It is also an unconventional presentation of the female body, in this case with broad shoulders and chiseled muscle. A series of contrasts runs through the entire image: the intensity of light, metal vs. flesh, and muted colours vs. vibrant colours.
