ENOUGH ! (3) – Jeans and Cigarettes, Victoria Bordier – Exquisite Art
This painting takes part in my new collection, “ENOUGH!”, which I started during quarantine. The main subject of “ENOUGH!” is women in their everyday life, problems in society, their desires, their strengths and weaknesses… as well as the overconsumption and nowadays fashion traps.
I show their thoughts through the souls of women. This is like a selfie, which opens their world to us. This allows us to embody the character.
I tried to present this collection with an extreme tonality and female protest…but with a bit of humour and a positive message.
In this painting, the woman screams “ENOUGH !”, throwing away her jeans and cigarettes. She is tired of her outfit, dressed in jeans and smoking tobacco daily. It feels good to be beautiful in pretty lingerie and feminine attire! Then we see the world across pink glasses…
I chose to work on 100% linen canvases because I like to work with quality materials which can last over time. I think acrylic fits well with style used in this collection of works, namely pop art. Brushes, brushes, and acrylic felt.
