Shop Pascale Taurua’s golden artworks

The empowering Pascale Taurua has returned with two striking limited edition artworks from her new Pour le Plaisir collection. Each of the portraits is beautifully hand-finished with gold leaf, adding a touch of glamour. These glistening masks symbolise her belief that we “convey an image of ourselves that is a façade”, hiding our true self to conform to societal codes.

We also have a suite of original artworks available. Get in touch to find out more. 

"What better than a mask to deny people access to our vulnerability?"

Behind the mask

Pascale begins each portrait by drawing several different facial expressions. She believes an understanding of the asymmetry of the human face is essential for mastering a portrait. Once she has captured the face, she creates a sketch in charcoal, pencil or oil before starting to paint. Following this, the gold leaf is delicately applied.
