Representing Beauty

It’s hard to believe that these crystal clear images are not from a fashion shoot and are actually oil paintings created by artist Anna Halldin Maule. In collaboration with her photographer husband Tom Maule the Hawaii-based painter develops a real photo shoot that then serves as the model for her finished paintings.

She says of her work: “Women of today are assaulted by a continuous stream of media bytes dictating how we should look, think, and purchase,” says the artist. “My latest paintings are part of my Persona series and through them I explore the ‘masks’ women wear in their quest to discover their true selves.” Persona is currently on exhibit in the artist’s debut solo exhibition at Scott Richards Contemporary Art in San Francisco through August 30, 2014.
