About the Artwork: Abstraction meets figuration in this hauntingly beautiful portrait of model of the moment, Lindsey Wixson. The soft feminine red marks are offset by cool tranquil blue, subverting traditional notions of femininity. The painting was inspired by Botticelli's 'The Birth of Venus' and similarly explores representation of womanhood, love and lost innocence. 

About the Artist: Iona Rowland is a UK artist with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art. Iona's artistic passion is to deconstruct, reconstruct and abstract the surfaces of the fashion industry, combined with its symbiotic relationship with sexuality. Iona explores the 'unreality' of fashionable becoming fashion excessive and confronts the binary of oppositions within the industry.
