Intentions of a Shadow [back]

Oil on Panel  |  9" x 13"  |  2010

The third character in this scene is an over-simplified shadow representing spirit and is seen preceding the woman into the bedroom where a man is engaged in his own secret world of dreams. The room is claustrophobic and her intentions ambiguous, creating uneasiness as to what might happen next. To further exemplify this, I also used some dichotomous imagery; one example being the placement of the shadow's hand suggesting sexual intent, and the sinister quality of impossibly contorted woman's body. Is she going to join him or kill him?
