THIS PAINTING IS BASED ON A STILL FROM THE GEORGE MICHAEL VIDEO 'FREEDOM' FROM 1990. LINDA EVANGELISTA IS THE LEAD 'SUPERMODEL' IN THE VIDEO, WHICH WAS A GROUND BREAKING PIECE TO THE NEW MTV GENERATION.

Lemay’s work combines the imagery of fashion magazines with the techniques of the masters to create a style he calls Pop Realism, reinvigorating figure painting with an exploration of modern fashion and celebrity culture. Uniquely, the artist divides the canvas into a grid, painting square by square, row by row to create a subtly digitized effect which is completely hand-painted. All works are oil on canvas.
