The Black Madonna

£5,000.00 £750.00


An unusual combination of abstract and religious content. The Black Madonna is a beautiful young African woman, whose features are molded in the same bold style as the abstract background. 

The creative forces of the painting emits energy, along with a pensive gaze of her eyes. The face of Christ appears next to her albeit in a spontaneous action of paint; barely visible, nothing more than a presence (the apparition can be seen to the left shoulder of the The Black Madonna – which is on her right side).

The dynamic spread of color flows through her hair, integrating her own presence as a manifestation of art in it’s most creative form.
