My painting, Alice in Wonderland, is now available as a professional giclee limited edition print provided by Patron of the Arts. This is a very limited edition of 50 prints, meaning only 50 will be made so once this edition is sold out, it is sold out forever. Every giclee is signed, numbered, and titled by myself, Brianna Angelakis, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) issued direct from Patron of the Arts.

Artist Statement:
My understanding as a female in society fuels the content of my work. I juxtapose the female figure with the wildness of nature to convey a sense of female power. I am greatly influenced by works of literature that represent the female through supernatural imagery. I expand the Romantic idea of nature as a sublime element, emphasizing the weather, and other natural phenomenon, so as to expose the disorderly freedom of the natural world. The unruly landscape mirrors the mysterious female figure. Furthermore, I represent the figure in an isolated environment, with a strong gaze toward the viewer. My cool color palette assists in creating a mood that reflects the dismal emotion of the figure. The melancholic expressions of the figure, combined with natural phenomenon, convey a sense of intrigue. All of these decisions allow me to engage the viewer with sensual wonder and emotion.

I love what you said about relating the sense of female power with nature! I certainly could see that sense in your paintings, even before reading this~
