The Rise Of


“The Rise Of”     

Amanda Rainey

Acrylic on Canvas Board



"The Rise Of" is a meditation of a reinterpretation of Michaelangelo's “The Fall of Man, detail of Eve” from an old reference sketch done nearly 20 years ago. It offers a female form without a face. The figure is rising, rather than falling, after reaching upwards to the Unknown. Her face could be any face. Her knowledge carried from one phase to the next, as the Moon wraps around her, to continue the cycle of ever-rising, as we learn; as we grow. Myth and storytelling, tradition and practice; when studying works of art, we are engaged with the subject and sometimes, it encourages us  to engage our own growth.
