Hope sits nude on a curvaceous chair, wrapped in an old rope of twisted natural manila. Twisted manila is the strongest of all natural fiber ropes. Its scale to the body is visually imposing and implies that the cable is sturdy enough to suspend her weight. It represents tradition and strength that can inspire us but also hold us back. Compositionally, the rope provides an alternate set of curves as it snakes through the image. The delicate tones of this image are inspired by traditional pencil and pastel media. The use of negative space and faded hues give the viewer distance from the subject, almost like a memory rather than a moment in the present.
