While living in Germany, I took holiday in the fantasy land of Amsterdam and surrounding areas of Holland. The most mind altering experience was when I began to mentally challenge the normalcy of this red light district and the degradation towards women that has become a fully accepted part of society there. As a feminist artist with a voice, I felt my voice once again would be the loudest when expressed in acrylic.
These latest additions to my “Eyes in Amsterdam” series really explore the vibrant lights and the human traffic for selfish impersonal gain. I can finally put down the brush for a few long breaths, as this series has by far been the most emotional yet.
I hope you enjoy meeting The Customers, The Ladies and the product. Please join me for the rest of the series, at http://margaretdesigns.net/amsterdamseries.html
