pretty little face
a series within the POST-MODERN body of work
pretty little face is a portrait-based series born out of dismay for the perceived trends of the art market and a personal wrestling with the reality of art's reduction into a consumable commodity. It is a grappling with the objectification of the work presented before the masses through the public arena of the internet. This means for greater reach and potential is likewise a threat to the intrinsic value of art, casting it into a sea of onlookers more concerned with aestheticism and technical prowess that true meaning and emotional connection.
