Artwork description:

Does our illusion of our golden self trump the reality of our existence? Marilyn Monroe is an icon worth celebrating in 24K gold. She was a movie star and a sex symbol, an icon in the revolution of our communal behavior. But even if she was a fragile soul she was truly a great artist. This oil on canvas with 24 karat gold leaf belongs to my endless series of iconic 24K golden portraits. I started painting "iconic portraits" by painting portraits of iconic people and things with a gold leaf background reminiscent of religious icons. My evolution led me in a big loop ending almost to my starting point with one crucial difference - now I paint the background and do the actual portrait in 24 karat gold leaf. I am now where I cherish to be and confident on my path forward.

Materials used:

oil paints and 24K gold leaf
