Monique van Steen "Niobe"

"Niobe" is one of my favorite paintings. In this work we see a close-up of a face that is receiving make-up from various hands. Make-up plays an important role in my life, from my adolescence I have noticed how people reacted differently to me if I do or do not wear makeup. Being made up Professionally is having trust, the trust that the people you will see you, will see a "better" version. And the soft stroking of the makeup-brushes make this ritual a true pleasure. I've played with the messyness of the background, since I enjoy investigating how far I can push limits. In this painting the limit of distortion of front/background was on my visual mind. Have you checked out the video on how I apply the dripping? You will find a link here on this profile. Enjoy! As all my canvases, the sides were painted together with the front, so from whatever angle you might look upon this painting, it looks perfectly finished! This saves you the tedious search for a frame that would fit well around the artwork. I will send the painting in a strong box, with all the (super)necessary packing materials to absorb all the wear and tear that happens through transport, to ensure you will get your painting in splendid conditions!
