Dont mention Tinyeye these guys are obsessed by it lol...and still not sure whether the lump of charred wood that makes up part of the work is a nod to previous discussions

Anna Platten, La Parade - The Outside Show, oil on linen



“Platten’s paintings probe the subjective feminine domain rather than the outward appearances of the female as object of the gaze. Yet Platten’s paintings are interesting precisely because they move beyond the predictable feminist agenda with its cliches of deconstructing the gaze. The artist employs theatrical devices and surrealism to disrupt narrative realism, setting up a tension between outward appearances and inner emotional vulnerability and uncertainty. Her use of costumes and props, and her distortion of scale, underscore the impression that her paintings are not set in a real place or real time. They are set in a poetic time, in the landscape of the mind, and have the heightened realism of theater.”


Must say . .Looking through her portfolio . . I'm very impressed with her work . . Good one Oblomov.

This Argentinian painter was born in the year that Elvis died & the Sex Pistols released Never Mind The Bollocks.
