Paola Travers

Portrait in Red

£250.00

A self-portrait by Paola Travers, inspired by the Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 20 collection. Created whilst in isolation during the Covid-19 global pandemic.

This look captured my attention with its bodice adorned with intricate embroidery. The design reminds me of exposed lungs, which "breathe" life and humanity into this ethereal figure. That area of the body is essential to our existence and seems particularly fragile and vulnerable nowadays. I also wanted to pay homage to a brand that has always stayed true to its creator's spirit and never fails to amaze us with breathtakingly beautiful silhouettes, which have a rough yet poetic quality to them.

Digital Print (Canson watecolor paper 310g)
Dimensions: 36x48cm
