9 of 52 is inspired by my friend and colleague Aguy Smith. I continued to explore paint texture to create more interesting forms. The combination of a complementary + primary color palette, with the addition of white paint for the appearance of high contrast, this is one of my favorite pieces within the 52 collection.

The “52 Collection” is a year long self exploratory project created by Yanique DaCosta. The “52 Collection” is focused on the female form with aesthetics influenced by the day-to-day life and encounters of the artist, over a one year period. This can be compared to landscape and its relationship to seasons. Think of a tree with green leaves in summer versus the same tree with no leaves in winter. This same concept is true for the “52 Collection”. The female form in shown in varying ways based on weekly and seasonal life experiences of the artist. Pieces include varying color schemes and visual elements conveying those feelings and experiences.
