About this artwork
When asked about the subject of this painting, artist Malia Pettit described her as bold, striking and intelligent. Malia says the title of the piece is more literal than one might expect. It's as though the woman who dominates this painting - wearing a power tuxedo no less - has willed herself to life on the canvas, transcending the surface and invading the space of the viewer. She has the power to seduce and command attention wherever she is put on display.
