Send in the Clowns

Working on a little series of Pierrot inspired clowns at the moment. Frankly, I find circus clowns terrifying, but the theatricality of Pierrot, the sad character, naive and romantic is beautiful to me. He’s a complex creature, clever, yet something of a fool, a prankster who is often on the receiving end of the pranks of others, and a courageous and daring acrobat. At his core though, he is a melancholy dreamer with a good heart, and that is what I’ve tried to capture with my whimsical paintings.
