Artist's description:

Neil Roberts paints a decaying Marilyn Monroe adorning the slender arm of an iconic lady named Sophia Disgrace. This painting featured in a group exhibition entitled 'Tit for Tat'. The exhibition provided an insight into how the art of tattooing has perfused all levels and classes of modern society. Just as the graffiti covering our buildings reflect the dreams, fears and frustrations of our cultures, so too do the tattoos covering our skin. We live in an era where the inner realities of mankind have bled through the skin and adorn the human temples, reflecting the style of the eternal soul or inner self. This exhibition also examined the metamorphosis of this art form and celebrated the "Tattoo Renaissance", a period marked by technological, artistic and social change.
Grotesquely beautiful, extremely colourful; the show aims to persuade the viewer to see life through the eye of a needle.
