Female Icons is a series consisting of 26 paintings, fragmented
journeys filled with profound associations, starting with letters
of the alphabet and ending as stories of wellknown women from the
history of mankind.
The artist's selection of 26 women throughout history, Female Icons is both an homage to Andy Warhol and an examination of TIME magazine's presentation of the most important 100 people of the 20th century, as the ranking included only a few women.
The paintings not only portray images, the artworks help the viewer to discover little known aspects of these influential women. The series is a mix of pop art and expressionism style using various writings and the english alphabet (thus 26 paintings). In that sense, this collection emphasizes and celebrates the conceptual meaning of writings within artworks.
