The word formation has two meanings for me. The pair of women are joining together. Additionally, the colors and positions remind me of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam portion of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. In this interaction, we have female figures in the roles. The activity is temporal, implying what is about to happen, as we witness an instant before the two women join hands. The swept-back hair of the model on the right emphasizes the feeling that they are moving towards each other. Both faces are obscured, one partially, the other entirely. I like the turquoise and sienna combination for the light, cheerful mood that it evokes.
