The Marjolein Banis 'Victorian Momento' art collection showcases mysterious female portraits. The dark images are highly faded and off-centered, allowing creative enthusiasts to peer into an esoteric world characterized by emotion and beauty. Many of the female portraits assume animal qualities, represented by life-size horns and elongated tentacle-like tails.

Banis is currently based in the Netherlands, and has worked in the realms of fashion, illustration and photography. This particular collection however oozes emotion in a way that has yet to be seen in the art community, merging dainty feminine qualities with an overt sense of despondency. The blurred nature of the images are also thought-provoking, leading viewers to opt for a hazy finish in place of clear-cut displays.
