Colette Calascione. Artist. SF.

oil on wood.
Surreal Classical/ true vintage pin-up girl style.
Calascione's work is inspired by the images of earlier eras (mostly Victorian)... she re-creates the women+scenes portrayed in old photos/paintings into more contemporary ones-interpretting them through the lens of the young, modern woman she is. While I rarely blog about 'classic art' I love it all the same... my appreciation for the older art styles (14th-19th century) grew when I had the opportunity to see lots of the work in Europe... this kind of intricate painting just doesn't have the same effect when viewing it on a computer screen/slide/book.
