Richly toned oils and delicate gold leaf feature in this seductive original painting by Pascale Taurua; perfectly framing the sitter whose face is excluded. Consequently, the identity of the sitter is represented entirely by their fashionable clothing; a concept not unique to contemporary art!
Across art history, many affluent women had their portrait painted and the most successful of these would come to represent the woman's whole political, economical and social identity. The most effective way to do this was through the painting of their clothing, which could outrage critics, influence trends and form political stances! Notable examples, such as 'Portrait of Madame X' by John Singer Seargent in 1883, have been immortalised through the striking representation of fashion.
Bringing this empowering tradition into contemporary art is Pascale Taurua, whose own depictions of dress and accessories captivate viewers across the globe. Luxurious fashion items from stiletto heels to trainers capture the style and grace of 21st century fashion. This unique original artwork is then the perfect way to add a contemporary yet classical touch to your wall.
