About this work
An artwork modeled after geisha, female Japanese entertainers who perform traditional Japanese art forms, such as dance and singing. I included in the artwork some of their distinctive characteristics, such the kimono and the oshiroi makeup they wear.
Traditionally, geisha held an appeal for male guests as a woman outside of the role of wife. Their wives were modest and responsible, while geisha could seem playful and carefree.
Appearing to lead a superficial life, Sin of a Geisha lets the observer wonder about the mysteries hidden beneath the layers of oshiroi they wear on the skin.
