Liselotte Eriksson (minnaloushe) - Self-portraits

She's a young Swedish painter (faeries, mermaids, erotica as she says on her site here), a sort of goth-punk with "delicatesse", but the reason I post her pictures tonight (I got them in stock for more than 2 years) is because I feel they are more than enough important in these times of sugar-sweet and smooth imagery of him/herself. There's a raw quality in these self-images that defy our own self-indulgent inclination. I would have liked that this crudity would appear in her painting but I hope she'll find a way to be herself in what she does.
