The Cher Within

The Cher Within

oil on canvas, 36″ x 24″  ||  sold  ||  purchase prints

The Cher Within depicts the magical moment when a drag performer prepares to cross the line between ambiguous guy in his underwear to full-on diva extraordinaire, in this case fashioned after his ultimate heroine, Cher. The painting also represents the diva in everyone, those who have actually taken their sequinned acts to the stage and those who may have offered more intimate performances behind bathroom doors, with towels for wigs and hairbrush microphones. I highly advocate vogueing before any and all reflective surfaces, because with enough imagination (and some extra-long false eyelashes for good measure), you never know who will be looking back at you from the reflection.
