In Bed with Loviz
The inspiration behind this artwork was an event I held with 13 women in a bed. It was all about women celebrating being women and feeling liberated by being photographed in their lingerie and then painted by me. There are lots of hidden secrets in this artwork, like all of the participant's names are in the beams of the ceiling. The Bedspread has grapevines to represent the area that the event was held, the Hunter Valley Vineyards. As one of the exercises, we wrote three positive things about each other, which I chose one of those words for each person and painted it in the floorboards. Two horses are dancing very faintly in the fireplace representing our free wild spirit.
