Oil on canvas. 

Dimensions: 100x100 cm



Also inspired by the Bacchus by Caravaggio, in this painting the figure is wearing only a black bra and a white shirt falling off her shoulder. She drinks with abandon from a bottle of wine. There are two glasses in front of her, one half full that she holds with two fingers, the other full and ready for an unseen companion - an invitation to indulge together? Instead of fruit and grapes, we find modern objects like a Polaroid and a Marshall speaker. An uninhibited woman, she doesn't fear judgment and leaves everything to interpretation: is she drinking to forget? Or to celebrate a great success? The choice is left to the viewer.
