Helen of Troy
by Christa Palazzolo

The artist says, "This painting was part of a series of 8 other “Talking Heads” portraying historical women in whimsical manners."

Christa Palazzolo received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin, with a study in Painting and Printmaking. Currently focused on using portraiture as a vehicle of mockery, isolation, discomfort, and objectification, she strives to confront formal aspects of painting with a contemporary voice and commentary.
