Original painting, oil on canvas.
"She hides in the blues, in the shadows, and she waits. The problem was never in the waiting, because this is time to reflect, here she can be herself and imagine a time when she is more than just the other woman."
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.
