Ethereal or Ethereum by Karen Chappelow
An original acrylic and ink and pastel painting on canvas, unframed and ready to hang on your wall
The whole world is going mad on cryptocurrency, digital art and NFT’s (not frigging there)…non-fungible token. I’m totally amazed by it and I cant help feeling a little Emperors New Clothes about them. People are purchasing artwork that doesn’t exist only a piece of data.
Anyway this is my say- by depicting the cyborg female holding a USB stick indicating the artwork is contained within, whilst you the watcher YOU are looking at the real piece.
