The Alpha Female is the dominant female in a group. A hard worker who is often busy, with little time to devote to those who are not genuine. This woman is usually sarcastic because she’s powerful and playful. She dates as many men as she wants or none at all, and is strong and confident. She is often the mother lion of her family, protecting her cubs and bringing home the kills. An intelligent, intellectual problem solver, she understands that being an alpha female is more a state of mind than physicality. At the same time, she uses her feminine and physical charms to her advantage. Often feared or terribly misunderstood by others – she prefers passion to romance, and integrity over bullshit.

This collection of paintings by Reisha and Martha A. Wade represents an ongoing quest to understand alpha women, and also themselves. This visual representation is dedicated to the lifestyles and characteristics of those strong women. The work showcases how these powerful women envision the concepts of confidence, sarcasm, power, play, and intelligence.

Both Reisha and Martha A. Wade have an artistic intuition that lends to the qualities of an Alpha Female. As women who write their own rules to life, they sometimes find themselves misunderstood or underestimated. It is important that their artwork celebrate the possibility of passion with freedom, coupled with unfettered creativity and expression.

The Collaboration of Sexy
New Works by Martha A. Wade and Reisha

Poking fun at sexy with 5×8 feet collaborative paintings on canvas by two dynamic artists, and self-proclaimed “sexy” women.  In this new body of work, Reisha and Martha push “sexy” beyond traditional stereotypes to encompass a new meaning – powerful, passionate, emotional, and intelligent.  The art is a vivid journey through power and beauty that represents a visual dictation of their collaborative sense of the world today – and the potential for tomorrow.

An irreverent spin on sexuality, exploitation, and the right to be more than what meets the eye.  The works stems from the artists’ desire to contrast societal beauty standards and sexuality with a familiar character viewed by many as comical and even intimidating.
