ISB | Oil On Canvas | 60 x 80 cm

I was inspired by the artificiality of beauty in social media. More specifically, how social media tends to portray itself as friendly and beautiful when at times it can be the opposite. As a teenager in 2021, I have been pulled into social media, and have also become aware of the more insidious side, such as with scams and toxicity. Thus, I used a set of flowers to portray beauty, but portray them as blood red and decaying to highlight this dark nature. I also included magpies which symbolize deceit to highlight social media’s alternative side.
