30″ x 18″, Oil and Mixed Media on Lasercut Panel
Current Exhibition at Flower Pepper Gallery: 3rd Year Anniversary Show from December 6th, 2014 to January 6th, 2015
Seattle-based artists Redd Walitzki paints sensual portraits of ethereal yet slightly-feral, fairytale women. Influenced by the old world Rococo omamentation of her native Bavaria, Redd creates intricate, swirling laser cut wood canvases whose flourishes echo her fluid use of paint and mixed media materials. Her technicolor muses enact a dreamily erotic exploration of both the lure of fleeting modern day high fashion glamor (her subjects are often wearing luminous eye makeup and glossy lipstick) as well as the original meaning of the term glamor, which in ancient times referred to illusory shapeshifting used by supernatural beings to perilously enchant hapless humans.
