Fairy Tales & Other Futile Fantasies by Michelle Leivan

Topeka artist Michelle Leivan probes the unpredictable world of politics, social media, and popular culture in this on-going series of self-portraits. Combining the original artists's self-portrait method and the modern selfie, Leivan creates colorful, fantastical paintings that are unconventional portrayals of the contemporary myths suffused with satire. Fifty-word mini-sagas that become complex narratives accompany each piece.
