Gasp! Giant makeup? Yes, except that they’re paintings {acrylic paint on shaped canvas}. I don’t know about you, but I could lose several hours just browsing the shelves of a makeup shop – the colors, shapes, palettes, glittery, matte, neutrals, neons and the list goes on. It’s like an art supply shop… for your face. Well, Geneva based multi-disciplinary artist Sylvie Fleury has taken this one giant step further:

Fleury has long been interested in the way the makeup industry discards the “new,” mere months after a long and extensive research process into textures, colors, and names. The attributes the cosmetics industry takes into consideration when developing a product, Fleury argues, are not dissimilar to those an artist may consider when creating a new body of work. But while makeup is wiped clean nightly, art is meant to exist for eternity. {via Contemporary Art Daily}

Brilliant. ps. That’s Sylvie with two of her pieces at Salon 94 in New York.

    Love the colors 🙂

    Beautiful color palette, and an excellent way to show color tones.
