Australian mixed media artist Chris Duffy creates colorful, sensual portraits of women using a variety of mediums including oils, acrylics, glitters, silver and gold leaf. These stunning portraits come to life in vivid and bold beauty, through the use of Duffy's unique palette.
At times reminiscent of the art nouveau aesthetic, these evocative portraits portray timeless beauty while at the same time exhibiting a strong sense of sensuality. Duffy's ethereal depictions of female beauty are soft yet strong, infusing a deep sense of seduction and mystery in each character.
These haunting and expressive feminine portraits each appear to hold a secret as if inviting, perhaps daring, the viewer to come closer. Through the use of vivid colors and delicately expressive faces, gazes and postures, Duffy creates sublime and erotic portraits -- portraits which emphasize the femininity and vulnerability of his daring and elusive beauties.
