PEELING THE LAYERS. A portrait of a beautiful woman with short dark hair and closed thoughtful eyes holding a sunflower of hope.
I created this painting with Acrylic Paint on a 14 x 11" canvas. This painting was part of an exhibit, the Latino Coalition's Latino Sexual Assault Gallery (Indianapolis). The Latino Coalition, through its Esperanza (Hope) program, presented the exhibit in 2020, in which 12 artists participated. I'm exceedingly proud to have been one of the 12. The purpose of the Art Gallery is to increase awareness about sexual assault in our community, to mobilize resources to eliminate it, and to be the voice of survivors of sexual violence.
This is an original, one-of-a-kind painting, signed, and wrapped carefully for shipment to you. I am certain it will be lovely hanging on your favorite wall among your art collection.
In a simple cream colored frame!
"PEELING THE LAYERS"
by Stacey Torres 2020
Born in Jamaica, NY in 1953, Stacey Torres is an African American folk artist living in New Castle, IN. Her primary focus are women of color, painting with an abundance of color and media inspired by her Caribbean heritage.
A self-taught artist, Ms. Torres' love of painting began at a very early age. After a 40 year hiatus, while spending time with her mother who was in her final stages of Alzheimer's, she began to paint again for emotional therapy and support. This practice continues today.
