Ellen Greene is an artist with an intriguing series of works: she paints old school tattoos over vintage leather gloves.
Thusly, Greene explores the contrast between two opposite traditions. While the gloves evoke a sense of femininity, purity and formality, the tattoos suggest sexual freedom, rebellion and criminality. The tension established between object and image ends up creating a beauty that is both androgynous and non-traditional.
