VANITAS 7

An angel of death.

In VANITAS 7, three large chrome skulls float toward us in the left of the painting, each one closer than the one behind. On the right there is a female figure in a classic pose, like an ancient Greek goddess. Only the torso can be seen – her neck to her thighs. The curved figure is sexy, tanned, and wearing a 1960s-style white bikini. At second glance we see pink wings spreading from her back: an angel? A beautiful angel of death perhaps? The floating skulls lead us toward this conclusion. But what is this thick saffron liquid shooting across the surface?
