This collection of paintings are monotone pink portraits exploring ideas concerning superficiality, sexuality, commodity fetishism, complacency, beauty, distraction and the female identity.
I am interested in challenging myself to put complexity and depth in these works while working with a limited palette, exploring different psychological states and emotions through different colors. These paintings are oil on canvas or panel in a variety of sizes.
The paintings and objects are aesthetically inspired by my recent trip to Paris and the exposure to French Rococo paintings and architecture. Insects inspire me because of the amount of beauty, pattern and complexity within such a small size, especially the butterfly.
