IMMACULATE DESCENSION by William Dais
Oil on canvas
60" x 48"
"A fresh-faced woman nonchalantly descends from an other-worldly vessel, into the wet embrace of a calm freshwater body. The scene is set in the midwest, a barometer of the cultural zeitgeist. Two figures that could be Catholic nuns from a bygone era, or Muslim women in chadors float across the water. An ideological fusion or fission seems imminent."
