One off at this size - Professionally framed artist Print

Description

One off at this size. A professionally framed and ready to hang. Full gloss artist PRINT of my original artwork.
66cm x 82cm x 2cm 'Olympia (after Manet)' #5, Art quality full gloss photography print, dry mounted and professionally framed in elegantly minimal and crisp/clean line 2cm matt black timber frame, with professional quality non warp acrylic perspex, acid free matting and backing.

This current body of work involves a reworking and recognition of Manet's 'Olympia' and 'the gaze'. My Olympia women (currently six in the series) are black and white products of the 50s and 60s domestic sphere - challenging and questioning their enforced role of the times being celebrated and glorified - surrounded by a halo and riot of lush nature - references to a Flemish style painting 'Olympia' meets the viewer's gaze (perhaps to a degree diffidently?) Surrounded by and lifted out of the domesticity of a woman's life in the 1960s
