The Pearl Girl

Oil on canvas: 100x100 cm. Interpretation of Jan Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. The glance and profile slightly rotated to the right towards the spectator and not to the left like the above-mentioned masterpiece.
The dark background covered by a resin veil, applied also inside the protagonist’s irises, drawing the light and highlighting the delicate “pearly” complexion.
From the suspended golden pearl earring among the black hair a spiral, a thread of pearls that swirls inside a shell shaped jewelry case positioned at the central lower part of the painting.
Laser beams that design the triangular shapes of a mirror beehive that filters the reflection of the protagonist’s four faces compose the external frame.
