The painting features director Mollie Miles in one of her Instagram photos. The background of the painting is neon pink spray paint and the figure is painted with oil paint.
Katrin Valgemäe (born 1979) is a freelance artist living and working in Tallinn. Valgemäe has studied painting and ceramics at the Estonian Academy of Arts and furthered her skills at the painting department of the Art Academy of Latvia.
Valgemäe’s works are somehow irrational, not in technique, but in some psychological way. At first sight, they are beautiful, decorative, and well-painted. But after a while, more layers reveal the intriguing underlying storylines. The depicted figures are often classically painted as beautiful women, who simultaneously express menacing grotesqueness. The technical sensuousness of the figures keeps the viewer on the fine line between attraction and repulsion.
