Charity Lurvey – “Idealizing”


Lena Groth

Charity Lurvey’s painting “Idealizing” was inspired by the idea of beauty in the eyes of its beholder. According to Charity, this painting has meaning both in its composition and in the process of its creation. The light shining upon the subject’s face represents unrealistic glorification, and his surreal appearance also signifies the concept of idealization of others. Charity used acrylic paint and the varnishing technique to deepen and make the colors appear stronger.
