The Book of the Women

Back to the women of the Bible, some works with a focus on "hidden" women like those without names, or mentioned in passing, or critical to stories that nevertheless warrant barely a mention. Right now I'm working through iconography and not thinking too hard about statements or artistic vision. The works are literal, almost illustrative, but still using words as substitute for line and form. Working in pencil on mostly clear white paper. I tried a couple with a richer color scheme but they aren't working yet.

Here are the first four:

The Book of Merab: Tamar (8x10)

The Book of Merab: the concubines (27x29)

The Book of Miriam: Bithia (7x29)

The Book of Miriam: Rahab (11 x 10)
