Monroe

A broken ‘doll’  Oil on canvas  2017

Most consider Monroe to be one of the most beautiful women that ever walked Earth. She was a glowing icon and her presence radiated with happiness and beauty. Her sultry seductive features were recognised internationally yet the life she hid from the world and silver screen showed more darkness than we could bear.

As a subject of unthinkable abuse in her childhood and teens, Monroe had pieces torn from her character. Although you cannot see the pain, it was there, hidden and hidden beautifully well. Only when the layers of her personality are stripped away would it show.
