Painting: Acrylic, Enamel on Other.
Glass Smiles and Orange Rain, the fifth painting in the 'Better Than Life' series, a social commentary inspired by the observation of modern living. The addiction to digital devices creating a filtered reality.
This painting is geared towards temptation. With her head in the clouds and double smile she is the incarnation of glamour. This linking to work of Edward Burnays and his ideas on public relations and propaganda.
This project devolved accidentally after the first painting in early 2017. Painted in black and white acrylic on raw linen, this has since become a favourite and has continued into later works.
Building the stretchers and stretching the linen is an important part of the creative process, to ensure quality of materials and to have created the work from scratch.
