Bold Eye On You is a painted eye study in a post card-sized painting series, Post Cards To Boobs. The pink shade ‘Bold’ is one of five shades of lipstick created by preventative breast and ovarian organisation, Pink Hope, for Bright Pink Lipstick Day 2018. The colours are named after and worn by five affected women in the community.
The watchful eye belongs to the Bold woman, Liana, and supports the mission of Pink Hope to “Know Your Risk. Change Your Future.” On the back of the postcard painting there is a written message from the subject:
“Dear Boobs, You are bold! I am keeping an eye on you. Know your risk. Change Your Future. With love, Liana. XX”
The painting also doubles as a breast check reminder for women on the first day of every month (March 2019).
Together with Bold Talk To Me, this painting will be exhibited and available to purchase in Femina Extravaganza, 23 January – 3 February 2018, which explores concepts of femininity and womanhood. Opening night is Thursday 24 January, 6-8pm.
