Dominika Linowska Portrait
This is a nude portrait of a femme model holding a phone, reclining on her forearm upon a table with a record player in the background. The background is pepto bismol pink with a large black square holding a white glowing sphere representing a planet or lens. The body is unique coloured in an immersive gradient of pink, green and yellow. This work was developed from a photoshoot exploring traditional portrait lighting and posing. The photo was then manipulated with Photoshop to accentuate visualized engagement between the model and the technological devices present. The oil painting is traditionally executed with layers of glazes and gestural impasto mark making accentuating curves of the figure. I aim to synthesize digital technologies and traditional methods to develop paintings that talk about our contemporary engagements with technology.
