Original artwork description:

While others might see fast-fashion and beauty photography solely as the means to an end, Elisabeth sees a photograph as a form of art. Thus, she has made it her mission to focus on the overlooked and let the viewer reflect on this phenomenon of redirecting one's thoughts and attention. By portraying photographs as acrylic paintings, she wants viewers to appreciate the portrayal of people within fashion and beauty photography and cherish the art of composition. Furthermore Elisabeth explores personal thoughts and feelings in her work.

"Golden" was her first portrait of a black woman. In this painting Elisabeth delved into the nuanced experiences of femininity and strength. By means of accessories and fashion woman seek to - among other things - create an identity for themselves. However, their true identity is very much a reflection of their values and behaviour. The central figure's downward gaze prompts reflection on her persona. Warm, golden tones envelop her, transcending her external shield of beauty, and reflecting the radiance of personal strength. Through this portrayal, Elisabeth aims to celebrate the beauty and complexity of black womanhood, sparking conversations about identity and empowerment.
