Thomas Meyer must love redheads.

From Top: Lily with Circles & Westwood

From Meyer's website:
The use of female portraiture as gathered from current culture, regardless of time period, has always provided an insight, no matter how subtle, into the world condition. Whether it be Singer Sargent at the turn of the century, or Alex Katz throughout the 60’s and 70’s, we gain an insight into the world situation during their time. It is for this reason that I find it relevant to continue the act of reproducing the image of current feminine haute couture in order to make sense of and at the same time critique our world as it is. My use of classical methods of drawing, “with a twist”, and simple painting methods that leave paint as paint, are intended to remove the magic or mysticism from the act and leave the work and its statement in a simple and readable form.
