Martin Eder "Snowflake" , 2018 Oil on canvas 200 × 260 cm @galerie_eigenart
Eder’s paintings examine beauty and ugliness, depicting pop culture in a grandiose theatricality suitable for an Opera.
This old master-esque portrait of a girl tied up, cocooned in pillows, is a contemporary allegory of the derogatory slang term "snowflake": a person that has an inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, over-emotional, easily offended, or unable to deal with opposing opinions.... In this work, the weight of these contemporary sensibilities resemble the weight of the world Atlas had on his shoulders.
Brilliant social commentary in a beautiful painting. 👏👏👏 #martineder #snowflake #friezehighlight
