Inspired by a model’s ‘finery’ at the Berlin Fashion and Food festival. I cannot think of any other two entities more opposing than these, I mean firstly, models spend half of their time throwing back up every morsel that has passed their lips, and secondly, posh frocks and slippery seaweed/octopus on the menu…do the fashion freaks really want to spoil their garms?? Obviously inspired by Lady Gaga’s meat dress, and I know that I advocate equal value upon each individual creature, however Octopuses are a little more endangered than densely farmed cattle.
This is just a preliminary study for a painting. It needs some fluoros and enlarging onto canvas——more to follow.
