My mom was an art and literature teacher. I have been to galleries all over New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, London, Prague, Madrid, and Barcelona.
This portrait conveys everything I love about Michelle Obama as a person. I keep finding myself looking at it again and again. The artist uses strong, geometric shapes, but then somehow cools it off with soft contours and blue undertones throughout. It makes Obama seem strong, approachable, and sensible at the same time. That is an exceptionally hard balance to portray. I commend the artist’s choices.
Your snide remark strikes me as ill informed and hostile. I thought this review was valuable and well thought out. I was glad to find it. If that is not valuable to you, then I suggest you leave your comments to yourself.
