LisaDora Mason-Chadburn, Two Green Stars and Some Green Men
Acrylic on canvas
80 x 100cm
This work is based upon a photograph of one of the Mujeres Libres from the Spanish Civil War. The painting represents an opinion on the true empowerment of women at an earlier time when they took up arms to fight for equality and freedom. The rifle is a Mauser 7/57 date stamped 1913. The Green Men are from the Rosslyn Chapel, York Minister, Guernsey and Peebles. LisaDora drove up to Aberdeen from Dunbar around 12 times for the same amount of sittings. The plinth ,incidentally, is chevroned with non-slip tape for the sake of safety.
