by Felipe Hueb
A collage strongly inspired by vanitas art trends. The naked portrait of a woman is emphasized by interesting post-production measures typical of this artist. The skin of a woman appears granular, strongly emphasized, showing all flaws, and even old. The colors are not random – the artist chose a faded and unpleasant earthy color for the skin. On the woman’s face, the artist placed a skull of a similar color, which looks like a mask. Due to its natural appearance, the skull gives the impression that it is smiling.
The artist, thanks to the use of many techniques giving a vanitative character, raises the problem of the perception and meaning of beauty in contemporary society. Beauty is not only a subjective category, but also a relative one. It passes quickly and ultimately means nothing. Even so, everyone strives for beauty as if it were something that everyone must have. The work therefore gives an opportunity to reflect on both one’s own and social needs and problems.
