MOYNA FLANNIGAN

998_largeI love this painting of Flannigan’s called Sphinx (standing woman) – 2007, oil on linen, it just makes me laugh, the image of the pretty delicate ballerina in high heeled boots having unpretty and indelicate rage.  All Flannigan’s work that I have looked at thus far seems to have a twist of darkness about it and turns sterotypes upside down, and often quite plain back drops to a shocking subject matter.
