Massachusetts based artist, Johniene Papandreas, creates large-scale paintings inspired by classical masters, such as Gustave Courbet. With the use of pictorial drama and theatrics, Papandreas aims to illuminate the inner psyche of each of her subjects. In so doing, Johniene reveals what it is to be human.
Papandreas works from photographs and observation by painting thin layers of casein paint — a paint derived from milk or soy protein — on muslin.
