Description

This acrylic painting was inspired by the likeness of 1920s film star Alla Nazimova. She was an American silent film actress from the Ukraine. I find her inspiring because she was a powerhouse for the time, not only an actress, but also a screenwriter and film producer. Powerful women were seen as something to be feared, and assertive woman were forced into silence. This painting depicts her breaking out and frustration with strong red and gold expressionist brushstrokes. Her eyes are wide in shock and the gray lines surrounding them demand attention.
