'Poppawn' is a play on 'Popcorn' (consumed with entertainment) - 'Pawn' - because Miley Cyrus, along with all young female pop stars seems required by the industry to be overtly-sexual in a way that higher-end artists do not. 
   
With Warhol and Julian Opie in mind (pop art aesthetic - flat limited, but colourful pallet) - I have endeavoured to create a portrait that presents recognisable characteristics of Miley Cyrus, with her "individual humanity" omitted in the removal of her eyes. Her face becomes mask-like, as if something that is worn to become that pop icon - which is something all performers must do, metaphorically at least.

They address such universal themes as; mortality, religion, mythology and philosophy. In addition, I am interested in portraiture. The paintings showcase combined techniques, from the figurative and detailed to loose and impressionistic.
