One day, I imagined what would a fairy fashion model look like (if they actually existed) and ended up painting this fantasy piece –– an acrylic, illustration style painting on 16”x20” (staples out of sight at the back), stretched, cotton canvas, using vivid, jewel–toned hues and golden relief outliner –– a thin, pale, waify–looking, elaborately outfitted fairy girl, who seems uncomfortable wearing such hefty costume and headdress… even her wings are encrusted/ embroidered and too heavy for flying. Instead, the fairy sits on a ground in a rather unnatural, uncomfortable pose. Maybe, she’s a model who’s taking part in a photo shoot…
In this, primarily decorative painting, one, however, may find a deeper message of our cultural perceptions and criteria of beauty, represented by unrealistic expectations of a unnaturally and dangerously super–thin female body, depicted by high–fashion models.
The painting is ready to hang and finished in UV protective gloss varnish. The sides are painted so there's no need to frame it.
The painting comes signed/ initialed on the front and also with a Certificate of Authenticity.
