MOBA Art Too Bad To Be Ignored

With a stylistic salute to the intricate patterns of the Art-Deco movement, the skillfully executed background evokes fabric and sponge-painted walls in this piece that captures the essence of meaninglessness. Floating inexplicably in the foreground is the dramatic isolated figure of a woman in contrapposto pose, curiously shrouded in a Bollywood belly-dancer's costume. The artist cleverly avoided painting the hands and feet, and devoted more attention to the details of the background pattern than to the woman's face. The composition's contrasting colors, delicate blending, and perplexing placement of a curved aura all amount to a fascinating exploration of ambiguity.
