I have always wanted to paint Sylvia Plath. It was one of my dream artistic endeavors.
I dreamt of having a wall of my artwork, which are mostly expressionist portraits of women. In that dream Sylvia had to be queen of that wall.
I started it on a whim. After 2 days and 2 centuries of patience, this happened..
I spent hours on selecting colours, deciding the pressure of every mark and blending.
This work will always be very close to my heart. Just like her words.
“I felt very still and empty, the way the eye of a tornado must feel, moving dully along in the middle of the surrounding hullabaloo.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
