FACE PAINTED BY DEIDRE BUT-HUSAIM
Artist Deidre But-Husaim born a twin. Lives and works in Adelaide, South Australia.
“Popular culture is both the prolific producer and voracious consumer of the beauty myth and its heroes and heroines, who provide creative fodder for Deidre But-Husaim. Her edgy painted portraits of insouciant youths offer a curious combination of knowing innocence. Importantly, But-Husaims adornments are not the ubiquitous stock standard tattoos that currently abound in contemporary culture, but rather elaborate baroque and rococo embellishments of the artists creation, such as exquisite chintzy floral vines and delicate birds.” - Alison Kubler (read)
