This piece was inspired by a March 1943 cover of Vogue magazine. The elegance and allure of the image immediately struck me, and I knew that it would translate very well to illustration.
My artistic practice focuses on the concept of glamour as the language of visual persuasion. Despite the fact that people often equate them, glamour is not synonomous with mere luxury, beauty, stylishness, or sex appeal. Instead, glamour is a binding of image and desire, which forms a nonverbal rhetoric that moves and persuades the viewer through images, concepts, and totems. My goal is to create art that is perceived and remembered as powerful and emotionally resonant. After all, art is not really about what I see, but what I can persuade others to see.
