Artwork ships rolled in a tube

Since a couple of months I am working on a Niki de Saint Phalle self-portrait for my icon portrait series. I admire the woman and the artist in her. To me and to my artistic work she is one of the most inspiring women artists of the 20th century. I could create dozens of Niki de Saint Phalle self-portraits. This artistic incarnation has become a real obsession to me. Niki is sharing my days and my nights.
This painting is inspired by Nikis shooting paintings. "I was shooting at myself... I was shooting at my own violence and the violence of the times." She was living for the creative process, the moment of shooting, the performance itself. The final artwork to her wasn't beautiful. It was dead, murdered.
