Neomi | 2007 | 10″ x 8′ | oil pastel and acrylic paint on Jo Malone packaging
i sold this one to a fellow artist, those are the ones that make me the happiest. he said he had to have it cuz his girlfriend’s body “is exactly like that” and on top of that she’s a huuuge fan of Jo Malone’s Gardenia. then later he came back and invited me to his paintings exhibit in SoHo, and i actually got to meet his girlfriend, she was very sweet. his artwork was neat, it was all big gigantic “paintings” that were actually not paintings at all, but massive sheets of some kind of metal that had undergone some sort of manipulated oxidation / rusting technique. they were beautiful. and super expensive. ugh, i can’t remember his name.
