“Leap of Faith” is a powerful work that juxtaposes elements of peace and drama. A young woman takes the plunge into the deep waters of midnight blues. Freely running washes of Prussian blue provide a quiet backdrop to the painting, while frothy, white effervescence surrounds the warm tones of her body. While realism is present, loose, gestural brushwork brings a strong sense of movement. This work is very much of our time and is both pleasing to the eye as well as thought-provoking.
