In Catherine Mahoney's latest art exhibition, she focuses her work on paintings that show "life". The paintings include her interpetations of people, flowers and fruit (shich she desires to set free) and texture filled landscapes.
Many of these works tell a story. For instance, her newest piece, entitled David, is of an African prince of the Maasai tribe. To pass over into manhood in this tribe, one must kill a lion. The lion's mane becomes a headpiece for the hunters to wear. In the background in front of a setting sun, an Acacia tree spreads its canopy over fellow tribesmen as they return home at day's end. These are in silhouette, which is meant to depict his ancestors who came before him and brought all their ways of making him what he is today. David is again found in the upper right-hand side of the painting with the headpiece.
