CONTEMPORARY PAINTING AND PORTRAITS

The Misses SERIES

The Misses is a mixed media portrait series on wood, emphasizing the idealization of youth and beauty in the facade of modern life. I am fascinated by the conflicting depictions of traditional western customs with the members of contemporary society. The oval frames and composition are a homage to the historic legacy of portraiture, while contrasting with modern styling. The quiet, subdued expressions, exposed wood grain, and mixed media approach are intended to create a dialogue between old and new.
