Daily Dose Pick: Karen Ann Myers

“South Carolina-based artist Karen Ann Myers paints pictures of the beauty women desire, often at the expense of their own sanity.

Myers’ psychologically intense, densely decorated portraits examine our culture’s hypersexualized obsession with glamour and physical beauty, touching on its aesthetic extremes, seductive appeal, and emotional casualties. Each image represents a certain aspect in a sort of collective self-portrait, with her subjects inhabiting a kaleidoscope of loneliness, power struggles, cocktail dresses, and clashing patterns.”
