24″ x 48″ Acrylic on Canvas with feathers (Adhered to painting)
Inspired by the ever-growing interest in cosplay, this young woman shows her love for anime by identifying with the character of a frozen queen. The elaborate headdress and jewelry represent countless of hours preparation leading to a type of performance art. The painting is a mixture of pop and realism, emerging from a two dimensional representation with a feather boa soliciting a touch.
