‘Kintsugi Samurai’ © 2017 Carlos Aleman
40″ x 30″ Acrylic on Canvas
A cosplayer rests a katana on her shoulders, defiant, spellbinding and confident. A contact lens in one eye resembles a hypnosis wheel rendering any adversary unable or unwilling to challenge her power. The gold and glitter makeup around her eyes is inspired by the Japanese tradition of kintsugi (art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold). Thus, the epic heroine has completely recovered from a shattered life and is now resplendent and triumphant.
*Paint on face contains some glitter and gold metallic paint.
