Serena Cole is a painter that, through her art, aims to question the saint-like status we've given to models in fashion magazines. Her subjects often have mournful faces, which reflect Cole's end of examining “the strange double-edged sword of being wanted.”

Don't be fooled by her intellectual mission, the work Serena Cole is hauntingly beautiful from the immaculate technique to the floating portraits, and the copper and gold leaf materials that she incorporates.
