Stuart McAlpine Miller - The Leader of the Gang (Our Gang) Canvas
The Leader of the Gang
Adding concern via the background imagery this painting reveals a potential fragility to the confidence of the main female image. Strong and independent, her eyes closed, she feels afraid to accept the reality of this situation. Again conflict suggests that she may not be entirely at ease. The three images suggesting that to remain oblivious is to remain in control further adds to the feeling that all is not right. The sepia tones suggest a harmony yet the animated actions act as a contradiction to this.
