Art. It’s a personal thing. For me, every artistic work is a window into the soul of the individual who creates it. Therein lies meaning both known and unknown; for interpretation is purely subjective. There is no right or wrong way of perceiving a creative work.
I have for some time desired a piece of artwork commissioned uniquely for me. Indulgent? Perhaps. But it just so happened I knew of a young, talented artist who could assist.
His name is Sean Thompson. He is a 20-something creative living in Sydney. His artwork is, in one word, sublime.
I sought the creation of a painting which juxtaposed elements of high-fashion with the desolation and harshness of trying to make it in such a cut-throat yet alluring industry.
Fashion is an industry primarily focused on aesthetics. It forces models to conceal and, in a sense, dehydrate their true selves to maintain the status quo; to become part of an army of automatons unleashed onto runways and the pages of fashion magazines.
This is the artwork I commissioned to represent this:
To me, it is exact. It fulfilled my brief. It is perfect.
