Feeeels Scarf

Feeeels magazine prompted me to recreate an image from memory. The image I chose was Saint Frances of Rome Announcing the End of the Plague in Rome by Nicolas Poussin. I have seen this painting twice in my life. The first time I was three years old and it was hanging at the top of a staircase in my grandmothers house. The second time I saw it, I was twenty-one and it was hanging in a gallery at the Louvre. The transition of this artwork involved theft, fights, deaths, and forgeries. I tried to encrypt this complicated narrative through geometric abstraction (by taking certain elements of this story and fragmenting like memory) and then rendering them as geometric forms.
