tamara muller

Happy Halloween! Granted, these paintings by Netherlands based artist Tamara Muller are more disturbing than scary… but I thought they might get you in the mood for a strange, creepy, but totally amazing night! I’ve written about Tamara before, and I just keep coming back for more of her bizarre girls. And it’s not a coincidence that they all look like they’re related… all of her eery girls are in fact, her… amazingly beautiful/creepy, stylized self-portraits. Love.

ps. If you’re in Europe, Tamara has two shows opening this fall/winter:

    Loving her variation in flat colors, textures, finished surfaces, and unfinished surfaces..

    They’re creative and evocative. Is it just random that so many of the faces somehow look like Gwyneth Paltrow??
