“So Pop”, 2021
Original: Analog collage and oil-sticks on canvas
Mediums used: Paper clippings and oil-sticks on canvas

So Pop illustrates a young woman wearing white sunglasses applying lipstick. The strategically placed beta fish, one as a fascinator and the other as a shoulder applique, reference fierceness, and boldness. The successful blend of urban life with wildlife creates a visually aesthetic composition. Bold reds and blues juxtaposed with stark whites allude to the vibrant palette of Pop Art. The image is a visual representation of high fashion and popular culture. Furthermore, the college references commercial items and recognizable advertisement imagery.
“People should fall in love with their eyes closed.”
