“Annabelle”

Art by PT Russell

The character of Annabelle was first created using only acrylic paints.

Annabelle-Mae Fox visits the Bahamas, the country of her birth after living abroad for over 20 years.

In this particualr piece, we find her at Taino Beach, Grand Bahama enjoying a moment of solitude.

In addition to acrylics, Mungyo and Sennelier oil pastels were also used in the painting.

“SACRIFICE”

ART By PT Russell

Serves as a visual devotional to women enduring, and who are survivors of intimate abuse. Specifically those subjected to the perfidious nature of cultural misogyny.

These beautiful women are unarmored gladiators, literally trapped in an arena with a ferocious lion.

The image was meant to depict strength in weakness and bravado during  a time of great vulnerability.

I wanted “Sacrifice,”  to bring awareness to defenceless women everywhere. Women confined to cages of solecism; discarded and subjected to emotional degradation.

Imprudent words are the invisible fusillade that infiltrate, decimating the mental fortitude of its victims.

A contentious episode could feel apocalyptic to anyone having to fight for the perpetuity of their dignity, and possibly even their life.
