Exacting Critique

Tourist at heart.
Sleepwalking through late night cinemas, along a kaleidoscope backdrop of skylines, midnight train rides and views of Dirty Beaches.
Bring your cigarettes and note taking devices. I typically dream in black & white.

Kate Middleton Portrait Buzz: Art Criticism, Sexism, or Something Else?

Maybe painting and photography have switched roles. This portrait probes at the public’s unrealistic idea of beauty. Digital enhancement and alterations have resulted in a public clamoring for more simulation. The public has moved beyond not being able to decipher real from unreal because there no longer is a ‘real.’ Paintings like this one radically refamiliarize, or reintroduce, the public to A. How a 31 woman actually looks B. How the public has become numb to digital manipulation C. How a visual, or multiple continuous visuals alter the expectations of the social consciousness and the value that society assigns and ascribes to that visual and those associated with it.
