Artwork Description

It is about make up. The artificial and temporary distortion of perception by introducing foreign elements to the face, or body to superficially enhance or beautify the appearance. I want to show the ironic equation it establishes with nature, how these beauty products, cosmetics, skincare, etc are formulated from the fruits of mother nature herself to change what she has bestowed upon us, for the purpose of creating a surreal picture over reality much like looking through a frosted window pane. This facade of fantasy merely leads to the gradual destruction of nature, and enhancement of self deception by hiding outside the window of reality and behind a colourful mask of lies. On a more direct note, it reveals how nature is being usurped by its own mutated elements to construct a warped fantasy land.
