Serebro-A bodypainting that came out of meeting Olea. The name is a mixture of the phoenetics of the word silver in Russian, and also has intentional lyrical reminders of the word cerebral, around its edges. Although highly decorated and obviously prized, there is a darkness to her, a mourning. She clutches at her luxury like it doesn’t matter to her any more, her eyes looking out into the canvas searching, asking “is there something more than this?”
Lineforms inspired by the silhouettes of peacocks adorn her chest, but they are at once extravagant and muted; a further testament to her state. As the piece moves further down, it disintegrates into richly coloured abstractions, the lines going with the form of her body and indicative of her kaleidoscopic emotions underneath, before a final flash of red signals the death throes of colour, fading into further darkness below.
The collar was painted by hand and contains over 200 hand placed crystals.
Everything is hand painted including the base. No airbrush was used
