Model Study 1
Photo Description:
Scale: 84x59 cm (A1) Media: Charcoal on sugar paper. Velanka's work aims to portray the darker side of the beauty and modelling industry. She uses images from the internet and magazines to translate these into her own interpretations. Her use of media creates a vulnerable appearance of subjects and each piece of work looks dramatically different from the source material. The source material used for the piece above exhibited a confident and sexually charged woman. However, Velanka's visual translation is dominated with vulnerability and sadness.
