Mary Magdalene has long been the inspiration for art. From writings and studies to masterpieces in paint and sculpture. Here, my own take. Inspired by several pieces from the 1400s that depict Mary Magdalene covered in hair. I wanted to create my own version. I began by modifying a fur vest. Then taking photographs of the poses shown here. Then I began the paintings.
The series is ongoing. Look for more paintings as I complete them. Costumes of fur to use in reference photographs, and performance pieces.
