About The Artwork

My abstract portraits are a visual dialogue about our societyʼs idolization of beauty, the enhancements women endure to obtain this level of "perfection" and the impact this has on the female species. Although my work looks like collage, itʼs in fact, meticulously hand painted to play with the viewers senses and create an optical illusion. Cosmetic enhancements and the various ways women play with their appearances to meet the status quo serve as the central focus of each portrait. By juxtaposing my subjects with diverse “perfect” features, I believe it speaks about the fragmentation within us all as we strive for acceptance. My aim is to produce art that consistently ignites discussion, captivates the senses and most importantly, question the importance we place on outer appearances.
