This is a series of paintings that depict three femme fatales from my country of origin, Malaysia.
They each have their traditional deadly weapons and these pieces were meant for the MASIF (Music, Arts, and Style International Festival) in the Petronas Art Gallery, Suria KLCC, Malaysia.
This is the Malay woman in her traditional kebaya dress. Her weapon of choice is the cucuk sanggul, a beautiful decorative metal hair pin that is nevertheless very sharp and dangerous.
The Chinese woman wears a very sexy qipao while she sips a cup of steaming tea.. or is that poison? Her hair is painted to look stringy like a snake to add to her venomous nature.
The Indian woman is proud and her hands and feet are beautifully decorated with henna. Her weapon is the little innocent lamp, which can turn into a fiery blaze in the wrong hands.
