Original painting in oil on canvas.
"Lost in glamour and enchanted by the illusion, a deer in the headlights, she holds still for the camera; watching birds playing through the open window she longs to jump up and join them....maybe it is the child in her, maybe it is the truth."
Paris Blanche Magenta Foot's paintings retain a unique and distinctive visual language, which is immediately recognizable and absorbing. Foot’s mixed media pieces are also brilliant; tactile and engaging - and quite touching. The faces of the pieces - caught somewhere between figuration, puppetry and debris – are reminiscent of the luminous faces of the films of the silent era, despite being based on personal source material culled and elevated from family photographs. Stylistically incongruent, the expressions of the figures seem sweetly unaware of what the rest of them are made up of.
