Aloalo is a Hawaiian word for a type of hibiscus flower that is used here in the headdress made by the artist. The contrast of the dark background against the emerging illuminated botanicals and the female form is a nod to one of the artist's favorite influences: Caravaggio and his Chiaroscuro technique, drawing the viewer into the painting while highlighting the power and seduction of nature and life.
