105 x 105 cm, oil on canvas, original oil painting, black frame, ready to hang
Description and analysis
A rare example of an artwork the message of which is conveyed not only through its subject matter but also through the technique chosen for the depiction of this subject matter. The square canvas is dominated by the easily recognisable face of Marilyn, a woman turned into a pop icon, a product of the mass media that enjoyed utter publicity to the greatest degree. Similarly, the stencil-like quality of the portrait refers to the easy reproduction of an image and by extension of its message, to the quick replication of the same image again and again, to the modern urban culture. Stencil graffiti artworks can be easily seen; they effortlesly receive publicity.
Additionally, the uniform and flat nature of stencil reflects the flatness and the lack of depth of the presentation of such idols that - as if allowed to have presence but not existence - are just displayed there for the public consumption. No weight is given to their individuality, unique personality, and personal needs which also was the case in the life of the actress.
