Models in Paradise

Mixed Media, January 2020
Original. 60 x 60″

I had my bike stolen the day after seeing these mannequins. At the time, I was setting up a meeting with a local gallery owner while looking for a winter coat I could wear while riding. This was my first time seeing a luxury mall and so many people from the area in one place. I was used to seeing people in their cars mostly but not on the sidewalks and streets. I immediately noticed how out of proportion women’s faces were around me seeming to artificially sculpt their hair, faces, nails, and skin to a certain standard of Kardashian beauty. There was very little individuality and I felt a bit out of place since I wasn’t conforming to a very specific ideal. The mannequins looked like an accurate impression of what I was seeing around me so I decided to paint them in response. 

This painting is based on the Picasso painting, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907). To me, it brings the same “lost beauty” imagery to life because of the mannequins’ grey skin, having identical faces, and being designed to be attractive to the general public.
