“She came wearing a black/green velvet cape, she had pale skin and long hair and she looked like a vampire,” artist Yigal Ozeri recently told Beautiful Decay about his latest muse, Lizzie Jagger. Capturing the stunning daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall with digital media on a snowy day in Central Park, the highly skilled painter transformed the imagery into a series of sensual studies and strikingly rendered realistic paintings, which are on view at LA’s Mark Moore Gallery through December 18.
“From the moment she arrived, Lizzie started to chain-smoke,” the Israeli-born, New York-based artist said of the session. “That was her passion for nature, that was her joy, her relaxation… She smoked and she smiled with great joy…The white smoke that materialized from the wet white snow was visually stimulating for me… Like the famous quote says, ‘the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.’ Both of her parents were such monumental, iconic figures that she is the ultimate model. To me she represents freedom, joy, and love.”
