Larmes (Tears): after Man Ray*

Buy an original Limited Edition for the same price as a cheap mass produced print!  

Composition inspired by Man Ray's 'Larmes' photograph, hand-painted using a digital brush 'loaded' with paint spots where the parameters (chosen by the artist) are altered to create different splatter effects. All the spots are perfectly symmetrical but are painted in such a way as to give the impression of depth or perspective. (more info below)

*Inspired by the Photograph 'Larmes' (Tears) by Surrealist Artist and Photographer Man Ray (1890-1976) 

Like the emotive expression of a silent screen star in a film still, the woman's plaintive upward glance and mascara-encrusted lashes seem intended to invoke wonder at the cause of her distress. The face, however, belongs not to a real woman but to a fashion mannequin who cries tears of glistening, round glass beads; the effect is to aestheticize the sentiment her tears would normally express. Man Ray made this photograph in Paris around the time of his breakup with his lover Lee Miller, and the woman's false tears may relate to that event in the artist's life. (J Paul Getty Museum)

Part of an earlier series 'Tears in Heaven' has been included in the Saatchi Art Collection 'Inspired by Man Ray'
