I wanted to stretch myself with this piece. Ive used some different techniques and medium in the background. Ive also started to add more free text, poetry and prose. I love her hair, its a real statement. Paper Tiger is a Chinese phrase (zhǐ lǎohǔ - 纸老虎) meaning something that seems as threatening as a tiger, but is really quite innocent.

Bold and provocative, arresting with sublime titles, this series of work explores the allure of the female form with strong, vibrant colours and stark lines. Each painting describes varying emotions from innocence and modesty to confidence and audacity through a process of neo-expressionism, the high key colours being crucial in achieving full expressive and communicative force.
