This piece is one of the more recent of Eleanor Dickinson’s works available for sale. It depicts a Korean woman in pastel in black velvet, demonstrating both the artist’s dedication to the human form and embrace of unpopular and unconventional materials.  Myeongsuk is the name of the model. There is a shadow of a skull in the background to remind the viewer of life’s evanescence. Her artists’ statement provides more detail on her choice of black velvet as a medium. One of a kind artwork.  See the About page forSee more details & history
