Rose Ellen Swenson's work is best described as portraying women as ethereal sensual dark goddesses that are entrancing to say the least. The way her pieces translate beauty, in a bold and powerful way, is absolutely effortless with the way she paints these beautiful models whose stares you can just get lost in. I feel like each of the girls she paints are something like Sirens, who lure you in with their beauty, but then eat your head off basically. I love that she paints her women looking so beautiful but not society's typical, standard, vanilla version of beauty. Her use of textures and mixing shapes that would normally seem like they would clash like geometric shapes and florals, seem so fluid and give the art a fantasy feel.
