Here’s one of the painting’s i was aiming to get done before the end of the month. Â it’s based on a random chloe ad…it was sort of a spur of the moment thing..you know when Â you just know you’re gonna follow through w/ something even though you had your whole day lined up but you scrap that + dont think twice about it…ever….and then you realize you have more important deadlines but know that deviating was worth every “wasted” second…its like taking two steps back, one step forward
What do you think? about the painting or the rambling ? which ever one

Based on a collage filled with magazine cut outs this painting portrays the short-sighted perception of false bravado + machismo. The shades of yellow are symbolic of the cowardice that lies masked beneath these surface deep attitudes. Following this train-of-thought I decided to highlight the skin tones of the center-front lady; in order to parallel the idea of magnifying the hidden shades of her persona, accenting her true base colorsâ€¦.the result adds an unshakeable tribal core to the painting. Â The glasses further emphasize her need for greater clarity, and the tilted, imbalanced vertical lines push this idea. Â Her oversized hat is literally + metaphorically an all-consuming vacuum that presents the-blind-leading-the-blind mentality; a society of individuals so concerned w/ the opinions of others that they feel impelled to copy/paste regardless of whether or not they find a trend truly tasteless. Laaaaame. For example in Mean Girls (which by the way is an AWESOME film) the Queen Bee, Regina George, finds her tee defaced. Unfazed she continues to wear it despite her bra showing through two peep holesâ€¦ the school follows suite. But like I said, itâ€™s short-lived, just like the overly bright/ripe fruit in the painting.
ps. it’s incredible how ideas just evolve….the above was supposed to just be
