This artwork is an abstract, pop art style reminiscent of the painting of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic pose and expression. The piece is a stunning representation of both beauty and fame, with luminescent strokes highlighting the tears in her eyes. Although her appearance is not prioritised, a fleeting moment in time is captured. The piece reveals a sad reality – how a person can strive for beauty and fame, yet lose their true identity in the process. The crooked nose is a reminder of the person that existed before the pressures took hold.
