About Mursi Woman Painting by Brisbane Artist Joyita, Queen of Colour.
"Following on from my ATLAS series of works, this one came to life soon after I delivered my artwork to the gallery for my solo exhibition.
She came about just before Brisbane was inundated with more rain and floods than I had ever experienced my life.
I started her just before the power went out and the internet was lost. I couldn't bring myself to finish her by candlelight so it took a little longer to complete.
I have always had a fascination with faces, unusual ones, especially those from different cultures. I have loved meeting people from different walks of life, different backgrounds and different skin colours.
I love all different cultures, especially those from African tribes, like my Mursi Woman artwork, it was her smooth skin that first captured me and it was inevitable as I lay eyes on her that she would become someone I needed to paint."
