“Once and Future Queen” Acrylic on Canvas 24×20″ Christine Hales
Once and Future Queen
This title refers to a TH White book called “Once and Future King”. It is the legend of King Arthur and the Roundtable. Who was the reigning matriarchal figures in Celtic history before King Arthur? An interesting quest indeed.
Christine’s new paintings owe a debt not only to the work of Matisse, but also to the American Abstract Expressionists, particularly to the work of Philip Guston and Joan Mitchell.
