Tuesday Under Ten: Melanie Willhide

 

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K. This week: Melanie Willhide's Henbane for Honey Bun series combines a luscious blend of women and flowers. Surreal and abstract, the images ask the viewer to question what is real and what is artificial.

Every Tuesday I post a work of art I love priced under $10K.

Shot in New York a month after the Madonna album came out, there are great glimpses of gritty 80s NYC, as well. Each image is printed in four sizes and priced between $2,750 and $9,500 depending on size. Available through July 5 - please get in touch if you're interested!
