THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The 18 Painting seems to suggest the way a young woman's body can blossom before her mind does fully. This painting features a black-haired woman, presumably 18 years of age, sitting in a corner of a room, nude. Her body is slender yet of full breast and hips. She sits looking down at herself in a pose that seems inwardly drawn. On the wall next to the corner in which she is sitting, there is a completed game of tic-tac-toe. On the floor in front of her is a teddy bear, a classic symbol of youth and childhood.
