See our interview with Naomi, below, where she talks about the inspiration behind this piece and her artistic journey.

How did you start painting in this style?    

Before my academic studies, my father regularly bought me books to make me acquainted with the greatest contemporary artists. I had had, from the very start of my career, an inclination towards realism, but when I came across Gottfried Helnwein’s catalogue I was completely enchanted by his style. I was fascinated by the incredible subtlety and acuteness of his observations, by his precision, and by the deep social message that characterizes his works. Under Helnwein’s influence, I tried to develop a very precise and detailed technique, and I created all the works that were included in my academy submission portfolio in this spirit. Owing to this underlying global concept, my portfolio for the entrance exam seemed to be the work of a fully-fledged realist painter with a youthful attitude. This need for realism and precision has not disappeared during the last 15 years.

In 2014 I discovered the websites Google Art Projects, Wikimedia Commons, and Rijks Studio, where all museums upload the pieces of their collection in high resolution. I started to use these paintings to create and collage new artworks with a contemporary touch. I place the figures in new environments, add elements to their outfit, and place objects in their hands, so they tell a new story. I also like to add humour to my works; most artists are way too serious.

 

What is the inspiration behind this piece?

My brother took me to a New Years Eve party at the end of 2017, where he mentioned that he might have gender-dysphoria. He said sometimes he wakes up and feels like a woman, other days he feels like a man. Right after that I created this painting titled Pride I. and another smaller scale work titled Pride No. 2. One depicts a lesbian pride protester, the other one a gay pride protester. To me, these are paintings of acceptance. In October 2018 my brother came out as transgender; she divorced her wife and now lives as a woman.

I decided to paint these paintings because I felt like there was something serious boiling under the surface. My parents didn't understand why I painted gay people with pride flags; I think they were worried about me and they had no idea about my brother. I only told my mum months later what my brother said, when signs started to be more and more obvious. When the news came, we were kind of prepared and not totally shocked.

"The classic painterly art style perfectly juxtaposed with the contemporary rainbow pride flag make this puzzle an immediate buy in my book. There is just something so charming and unique about the imagery and paired with a wonderful message of equality? Love it. Besides, who doesn't want a rainbow fish hat?" - Liz, Sales Associate

Very frustrating

While we liked the puzzle image, the pieces were cut in a way that it was very difficult to ascertain whether they fit correctly or not. When they didn’t fit, and we were trying to disconnect them, the paper often separated from the cardboard. When we were left with only the black pieces, it became an exercise in tedium. Time and time again, it was not clear if pieces fit or not. We finally gave up, with dozens of black pieces, it was not worth it to complete it. We do tons of puzzles so it takes a lot for us to give up. Very disappointing.

Very disappointing

We loved the image and all it represented. However, the amount of black pieces with no contrasting shades makes it the only puzzle we are uninterested in finishing. Because of the amount of trial and error expended in fitting the black pieces, many of their surface paper separated from the cardboard backing.

Very Frustrating

This puzzle, of the hundreds I have done, has been the most disappointing. The black area was horrible. Many pieces seem to fit perfectly, but are proven not to be correct. The poor quality of the puzzle also means that when one must try to guess and check pieces, the close fit for many would-be candidates causes tearing. Getting the black section done ended up looking like a war zone.

Wanted to love this one.

Be aware that this puzzle has a glossy finish and the large chunks of solid black are difficult in not a good way, and I do lots of puzzles. Good puzzles have images that are designed for puzzles and this was not. The quality of the pieces is not good enough to help with these solid areas either. Sorry, wanted to love this one.
