Marilyn Monroe - Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

In the history of American icons from the twentieth century , Marilyn Monroe has be immortalized by artists in the effort to give her a sense of reincarnation. I found this self study to be just that, immortal, captured from a negative. Nevertheless to say, I was overcome by a dainty girl who by all means was prudish, concerned over her height, bitchy, clingy and needy.

Her popularity was a reflection of someone who hated all the attention, but craved it (independently). She was no fool, bright, careless in her ways and suspicious of people. Her life was turbulent, her passing, a kept secret, forever and ever and ever.

Marilyn Monroe’s heart was open to her perpetual insecurities, her spirit lingers.
