Touch/Don’t Touch Me is a continuation of my exploration of the Me Too Movement. As with the torso Look/Don’t Look at Me, I am examining opposing emotions: desire, confusion, fear, the need to be touched by someone desired compared with the trauma of unwanted touch. I cannot explore one emotion without considering the opposing experience, both exist as experiences remembered in the body. Renaissance Artist Elisabetta Sirani’s (1638-1665) painting Timoclea Kills the Captain of Alexander the Great captures the rage of a victim who uses that emotional power to enact revenge on her rapist. I painted this powerful image with underglazes on the front center column. I rendered from Elisabetta Sirani’s paintings Cleaopatra and The Flea, and I also painted from images of Dutch Master Johanne Vermeer (1632-1675) and contemporary California photographer Raymond Elstad.
