NANCY DE FREITAS – BLOOD FLOORS/CLAY WALLS (HUGE)
Title: Blood Floor/Clay Walls
Artist: Nancy de Freitas
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Oil Size: 130cm x 110cm
Frame Size: 134cm x 114cm
Nancy de Freitas Large Acrylic On Canvas. “Blood Floors/Clay Walls” part of her family album series. Signed & dated 92 bottom right. The image is in “Very Good” condition. The Rimu frame is also “Very Good”.
For the author’s explain, the three rooms refer to: 1) the place of the family/mother relationship 2) the honing of independence in wider relationships (ie to the family/siblings first) and 3) the growth of ego and personal strength. The bald heads refer to our human vulnerability and innocence.
All of the paintings in this series had a reflective/dark side and consider them to be the best of Nancy’s whole career. This one, ‘Blood Floor, Clay Walls’, is the cornerstone painting of the series. Hope to get a public gallery collection or a significant private collection so that it could be seen by many.
