Ellis King - Paint Me Like One of Your French Girls


Acrylic on Panel


67 x 76 cm

With rough texture contrasting against the flat, Paint Me Like One Of Your French Girls looks to expose the unexposed, and flip beauty on its head. Consequently, the title of the piece serves as a form of self-deprecation, acknowledging my departure from the conventional portrayal of femininity often desired by both artists and subjects alike. The emotion of the portrait looks to reflect this through a serious bitterness.
