"Le Corsetaire" Mixed Media Painting

"Le Corsetaire"
Mixed Media

This painting was the first completed in the series. It paved the way for "Forever Strong Womanhood" with its illustration of control and power. The clown represents "man" during a time of conformity and restriction. He tugs on the laces of the corset worn by an Edwardian woman who clearly is fatigued, yet hopeful. The relationship between the two is of reluctance and strength. A representation of a time period that emerged into today.

The original mixed media painting was painted on illustration board. Acrylic paint, pastel, pen and ink, an antique textile, a vintage stamp, and handmade papers were used in the creation of "Le Corsetaire".
