Reminiscent of the angels appearing in paintings throughout art history, this piece portrays an angel in the act of blowing a horn, heralding some divine event. Like many of my pieces, this painting is meant to emphasize the figure itself, how the body creates the act suggested through pose and gesture. The ornament or accessories to the figure are often gone, creating the feeling of a fragmented ancient piece that we must understand through bodily context.
