    About The Work

    One of the reoccurring motifs in Wieland's oeuvre is playing with and subverting icons of femininity. In this work Wieland presents icons inspired by the French Queen Marie-Antoinette: a jewelry or hat box, a hairbrush, a medallion. The artist seems to be willing to give a make-over to the Queen. In the "nice medallion painting" on the left the profile of the woman seems sagging and doughy. An arrow points to another medallion where the subject has a sculpted sleek hairdo, a slim neck and precise features.
