SURFER GIRL | Surfing Art Print

SURFER GIRL | Surfing Art Print

“Surfer Girl” serves as a potent cultural critique and a conscious effort to break down stereotypes. By appropriating Hokusai's "The Wave," I lend a new perspective to the classic piece, transforming it into a beacon of diversity, inclusivity, and equality. It is through such artistic expressions that we can truly challenge societal norms and make strides towards a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable society. 

Art has a transformative power. It can take an ordinary object, person, or event and imbue it with profound cultural, political, and societal commentary. The decision to depict a woman of color, came from a commission for a great friend and was inspired by the brilliant surfer Nique Miller.  My oil painting offers an inspiring testament to the emancipatory potential of art.

Hokusai's "The Wave" is a profound and significant work, symbolizing the immense and untamed power of nature. However, by choosing to reference Hokusai's "The Wave" and present a woman of color as a surfer in its powerful folds, I brought an additional, human layer of power, resilience, and potential, one which is often underrepresented or marginalized in the prevailing narrative.

The depiction of a woman surfer challenges the stereotype of surfing as a predominantly male domain. This reflects a crucial shift from the traditional depictions of women as passive spectators or objects of beauty. By placing the woman at the center of the painting, I assert the idea that women can partake in and master traditionally masculine sports. The painting serves as a visual manifestation of the fight for gender equality, championing the idea that opportunities and roles shouldn't be gender-bound.

Each print is an original 28 x 18 inch, 1 of 1, embellished, hand signed and numbered canvas giclee.
