My tapestry Amandaconda was accepted into Nuditas, an online exhibition put on by Exhibizone. It runs from September 25 – November 25 and can be seen here.
Amandaconda is part of my Burlesque series which explores the sensual, female form from my perspective as a performing burlesque and belly dancer. It also exemplifies the parallels between my choice to expose myself as a dancer vs as an artist. Combining my passion for dance with my love of tapestry I am creating a series intended to challenge the observer with complex, and often contradictory, societal views of women. Some of these portraits are larger than life to heighten the emotion and drama, as in Amandaconda.
