About this Work

After failing for several weeks to find a subject matter which inspired me, I discovered a make-up artist that specialized in lipstick. Her carefully cropped portrait images featured a unique application of various colors that produced an extremely vibrant result. Upon closer inspection I felt compelled to paint her interpretation of the ideal application of lipstick as a work of art. Using models from many different backgrounds I received instant positive reception which compelled me to further the series. In doing so it occurred to me just how obsessed men and women can be about a pair of lips, hence, the title of the series “Fixation”.

The first 100 prints of each Fixation edition are reserved for Triptych Purchases.

About This Artist

“I consider myself to be a capable artist, not a pattern maker, not a subject matter expert, but an artist unafraid of the unknown.”

About The Paper

Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325 gsm, 100% a- cellulose high gloss finish. Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta is a bright white, cellulose-based Fine Art paper with a coating specially tailored for Fine Art use.

The clearly visible, exquisite felt structure lends the paper its lovely soft feel and tactile surface texture to produce prints with a stunning depth. The high-gloss premium coating guarantees outstanding print results with perfect reproduction of colour and detail, deep blacks, and striking contrasts. The barium sulphate within the coating gives Fine Art Baryta the feel of a traditional analogue baryta paper.

The acid – and lignin – free paper meets the most exacting requirements.
