"Phantasmagoria" - A transformed painting depicting a young African woman on the side, torn between the desire to embark on a challenging journey and the fear of losing the familiar life she knows.


In a painting set during a great depression, a side view of a beautiful woman with minimal makeup. Her flowing hair forms a mist down an abandoned street, symbolizing a curfew that restricts her movement. A staircase made of her hair curls down her neck, leading to an underground tattoo representing the risks she takes for human interaction. Pale-faced, her makeup fails to conceal her fear of being caught. This evocative artwork captures the struggles of seeking connection in a time of limited freedom and heightened apprehension.
