Sensual Paintings by Christine Wu

Christine Wu is a Los Angeles based artist, an illustrator, and designer who received a BFA from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.

I am open to other people’s interpretations of my work and enjoy hearing what people can perceive in the images. I don’t want to guide a viewer too much with what I intended any given piece to be, the feel of the whole thing is much more intriguing than what someone might “see.” Because art is a reflection of culture and that artist, I am definitely present in my work. The exact themes become a bit muddy, since the pieces are an amalgamation of my experiences and likes. via

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
