Web Description: 
Africano is a painter who began to make glass sculptures in the 1980s. All of these sculptures are based on studies of his wife, Rebecca. The female figure, half-dressed, reveals herself to us in her partial nudity, but her emotions are hidden, cloaked perhaps by the yards of fabric that form her full skirt. She is not positioned squarely in the center of her base, but appears, perhaps a little hesitantly, at one end. Her stance is somewhat defensive, and she seems about to move away, yet something draws her to stay within the viewer’s gaze.
