"Sting" by Miss E. Acrylic on cradled board, 40 x 40cm hexagon, 2017.
Created as part of the DARK HONEY Group Exhibition at Off The Kerb Gallery.
I had a blast painting this piece, using my favourite celeb crush Ruby Rose as reference. I was inspired by my recent love of boxing, and the quote "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" immediately came to mind with the theme DARK HONEY. I love the idea that as a woman I can float like a butterfly and be beautiful and delicate, and then have fists of fury and sting like a bee.
