This oil painting is an allegorical work depicting the loss of innocence. It also acknowledges John Singer Sargent's 'Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose'. But unlike his painting, which I interpret as one depicting the purity of childhood, my work attempts to subvert that mood by placing a young girl in a consumerist environment dominated by sexually charged advertising. Thus the painting is a commentary on modern life and the sometimes pernicious effect of media in our everyday environment.
