Faust and Metamorphosis

Michi Farias's avatar Michi Farias

This is a 4x4 foot oil painting that represents putting on a figurative mask to please others. Historically, women were not allowed to study figure drawing until past the 1950’s—simply because it was considered ‘improper’ at the time. This still holds true in certain countries, and I want to retake the image of women to be images painted by women. Our bodies are real, and our bodies need honest representation—which has been lost in the airbrushed and photoshopped internet landscape women must see on a day to day basis.
