Need


I decided that Marie Barr's painting "Need" would be the first critique I posted.  This large painting freaks some people out, but after I viewed it for a while, I couldn't help but delve into a different meaning behind the work.  

The woman higher up clearly has devilish features associated with her...the red, the pitchfork looking microscope, the hair that turns into a devilish tail...while the lower has a more modest and pure look.  Relating this to the images of food used throughout, I saw the devil as tempting the higher woman to think she "needs" what she sees (the cupcake) while the other turns to pure food that her body welcomes as a need and a healing source.  The fruit is attached to her heart...like it's fueling it.  It's not disattached like the cupcake (something that is not making the heart run).  

Food for thought...literally ;)

Art for all,
LuLu

Apologies and Art



My sincerest apologies for not posting in...forever!  I took on a full-time position at an awesome art gallery this summer in the beautiful National Harbor!  The gallery (Art Whino) has consumed much of my time and even though I've been doing fashionable things (such as styling photo shoots for my internship as assistant to the editor in chief of Fashion Fights Poverty's Lookbook) I haven't been taking photos!  It's hard to take a full body photo of myself and I'm not about to ask patrons at the gallery!

Anywho, I'm sharing a couple photos with you of our most recent artists at the gallery.  The above is "Cuca" by Tatiana Suarez of NYC...it rocks!  You've got to come into the gallery to see her other stuff!  I'm around Monday-Friday!

And below is the previous artist, Kelly Castillo of LAI loved the titles of these: "Two Late" for the woman and baby and "Too Late" for just the man.  I sold those to a happy customer :)



So for the next while, I will likely be focusing on doing art critique based posts rather than fashion.  But let's be honest, how closely related is fashion and art?!  Extremely!  Designers are in essence artists and artists aren't unaware of fashion trends as they affect the art world as well!

Cheers to busy summers,
LuLu
