About this work
Louis Vuitton is among the world’s most iconic and valuable luxury brands. Veil of Luxury is part of a series of works questioning materialism and the overexposure of luxury brands in today’s culture. The artwork depicts the skin of a woman as a luxury product. We often cover ourselves in a veil of luxury to hide our insecurities and look for recognition from others.
It required exceptional patience and many hours of concentrated effort on the part of my makeup artist and her assistant to meticulously place hundreds of logos on the model’s skin.
