Description: Influenced greatly by the power and beauty that he sees in women, Grenon has made his oeuvre almost entirely of women’s faces. In Woman #2, his subject is clearly divided into light and dark halves, but she is by no means broken apart. The two sides show her complexity and potential duality; the innocent and the wicked, and, possibly, the virgin and the whore. In Grenon’s eyes, however, she is not limited to the black and white binary of virtuous or depraved, rather she is literally multifaceted behind her challenging eyes and knowing smile.
