This is a series of portraits titled Chinoiserie. Much like the title suggests, it interprets pre-existing imagery to form a different aesthetic. The subject of my paintings is the historical influence on the contemporary perspective. Focusing on the intersectionality of the black woman’s media narrative and my reinterpretation. I am interested in creating an almost jarring world for the viewer through my use of bright and appealing colour; to an excessive degree. Colour alludes to the contemporary lens’s rosy retrospection of the past.
