Fashionable Nightmare (15 pieces) [My Modern Metropolis]

Fashionable Nightmare (15 pieces): "

Liza Corbett's fantasy world is incredibly dark, yet undeniably fashionable. It's like the Brookyln-based artist gives us front row seats to a Tim Burton-produced fashion show.

'I’m often inspired by stories of people leading fantastical lives,' says Corbett. 'Real or fictional, their stories can get you thinking beyond your daily existence. Like the artist who arranges her refrigerator like an art installation, putting broccoli in silver candlesticks.

"I’m inspired by a number of women artists across the spectrum of commercial and non-commercial art. I’m really inspired by Camille Rose Garcia, Margaret Kilgallen, Camilla Engman, Louise Bourgeois and Kiki Smith. Some of the painters I could look at forever are: Edouard Vuillard, Isabelle Arsenault, Pierre Bonnard & Natalie Ascencios. For line and shape, Aubrey Beardsley and Arthur Rackham."
