Joyful Spring 2/10
by A K Nicholas
The contrast of hot and cold colors parallel the dichotomies between old and new, static and energetic, in this urban figurative portrait. An African-American woman exudes strength, energy, and joy amid almost dystopian urban decay. Her exuberant leaping figure is reflected in her shadow on the wall, capturing a moment wherein the human body is devoted wholeheartedly to carefree enthusiasm. Long-forgotten oil-soaked slabs of asphalt are rediscovered and repurposed for a brief celebration.
