De L'eglise
14" x 11", acrylic, 2008

This is Magdalena. Of polish descent, she exudes femininity in every way. She walks, talks, and conducts herself like a true lady. With a name like Magdalena and a station called De L'eglise, it was inevitable that I was going to pursue a religious theme. As you can see, her head is placed front and center of a cross-shaped background. Also, the ornate purple and yellow bricks behind her are reminiscent of the colors found in countless Montreal churches. I like the different shades and combination of colors in the individual bricks. The architects certainly had a stained glass theme running through their minds when designing this metro station.
