Actually, you can find lots of examples in art around 1900 where death is pictured as a woman - just think about the femme fatale. I think your style pretty much resembles that era (which is why I must say that I just fell in love with your works).
One of my favorites is a drawing of a Hungarian painter, Aladár Körösfői-Kriesch. Its title is "Man chasing Death", you can view it here: [link]
is there any particular reason for this beautiful pic, or some sort of story it has? It really looks like it has one! There's usually some sort of story behind every art piece, and I personally really love to hear about them. Gives it more depth and meaning. And what is the skeleton lady looking at up there?
I'm not exactly sure why, but I do love this piece very much. I think because the people are so well done...you know...perfectly lifelike kinda thing. I'd be proud to hang it on my wall. <3
In the middle ages Hans Holbein did a bunch of "Danse Macabre" drawings. Basically to remind people that not matter who you are, Death would find you. I took this theme and applied it to another time that had a massive pandemic...the Spainish flu of 1918. This flu killed 50 million people, mostly young and healthy people. It was less than 100 years ago and most of us don't even know that it happened. Thanks!
Oh my goodness. This is so beautiful, terrible and utterly sad - all at once. Your style is so specific, and this one picture just nails it. It's stunning, and very thought provoking - more than 'just' a picture
