Oil on canvas, (9) x 50 x 40 cm, 2015
Series of 9 paintings of Brigitte Bardot. In the running up of the French Presidential election in 2012, Bardot wrote a letter in support of Marine Le Pen, the leader of the National Front Party. The idea for a series of paintings of Bardot alongside a series of paintings of Le Pen, was an attempt to compare the two blondes, the one representing sex appeal and the other hard right wing politics. Bardot’s official handwritten letter also ended up as an inspiration for a painting.
