Elizabeth Barlow
Portrait of a Dancer / ballet shoes oil on canvas

2016

$2,400

About

A beautiful and romantic still life portrait that celebrates girlhood and dance, featuring satin ballet slippers with cascading ribbons and shadows in pale pink and white. The work is painted from the actual point shoes of the great New York City ballerina Wendy Whelan, and is framed in a 22k white gold floater frame with outer edges of 21 1/2 x 17 1/2 inches. The oil on linen painting is 20 x 16 inches and is a lovely thing to behold. In the spirit of the great portraiture tradition, but deviating from its usual approach, Elizabeth Barlow creates oil paintings of people using their belongings rather then their faces, to explore the human experience. The meticulously rendered portraits feature still life objects thoughtfully arranged into compositions representing the essence of her subject. Her humor, joy, and love of iconic fashion come into play in her delightful work, as she skews traditional portraiture to capture individuals, both famous and obscure, with her unique, contemporary style.
