The Woman Is Not Really Crying
Charcoal and acrylic on paper pasted on reclaimed lumber, mounted on oak panel.
29 x 42 inches.
This is a commissioned piece, but is also a study for an upcoming collage which will be half the size of the study. The woman being portrayed is a reference to the Genét play The Maids and is one of 3 figures in the composition. It was a tendency of Genét's work to draw attention to the fact of what was real and what was not, hence the title.
