The Pin Up Painted Black
Ewing’s sometimes humorous subjects, and always alluring tactile surface treatments, draw the viewer into her world where they find contemporary fashion models and 50s pin-up girls—icons of Caucasian beauty—transformed with African American features. Using images from popular culture, Ewing explores issues of race, sexuality, beauty, and misogyny. The results are funny, charming, provocative, and powerful.
