This painting was part of a series called "Momento Mori". Using skull imagery relates back to a 17th century art movement called Momento Mori, which is Latin for 'Remember your mortality'. The image of a skull is seen as negative, scary, dark, and a metaphor for death. However, I wanted to highlight the raw beauty and intricacy of skulls. The larger than life size seems striking, but by layering watery brush strokes upon one an another, a delicacy and ghostly effect was created.
