Mask 5
Sold
Size: 32 cm x 38 cm
Framed: Yes
Year: 2019
Signed: Signed on the back
The dark “mask” created on cardboard with spray-paint and pen, looks like a gloomy portrait of what we normally recognize as the cheerful cartoon character Mickey Mouse. More likely, it could also be a self-portrait of the artist, who frequently wears a balaclava with mouse ears. Miss Me oftentimes portrays herself and other powerful women, and with her art work, inspired by feminism and female power, the artist perceives self-liberation, authenticity, and to be a loud, counter-voice to the objectification of women in mainstream advertising. The artwork is framed in handmade wood frame measuring 49x46 cm.
