Oil Painting – Christopher Cart

This oil painting has an edginess that reflects the Soho art scene outside our young protagonist’s apartment door.  She is almost pathetically vulnerable, yet eager to be ready for anything the city might bring her way as she lives each moment in the now, as the young do.  Her punk hairstyle and black corset contrast with the childlike pose of her feet, and the patterns made by her clothing and the bathroom tiles and rug fascinate us and contrast with the loneliness of her somewhat bare looking rooms.
