Michelle Tanguay Large-scale Portraits Of Females Enjoying Candy As A Metaphor For Power And Independence

Michelle Tanguay is an artist currently working in Detroit who paints large-scale portraits of females enjoying lollipops, as a metaphor for power and independence.
‘I had a toothache. The result of my sugar addiction and overindulgence of sweets. The intense, loud color was inspired by the colors I found in the candy I was consuming. The cinematic appearance can be attributed to my attempt to capture a moment of seduction. More specifically the moment when the power shifts to the seductress. My studio was/is often filled with beautiful temptresses and large bowls of candy. I found myself seduced by both and I simply painted what was in front of me’.
