Love is Blind I is a painting by Jackie Von Tobel, reproduced as a Fine Art Giclee Print, in her Social Commentary Collection of wall art. In these portraits, she is exploring the hot-button issues of today that are not so different from those in the past. Using elements from classic paintings, and adding new imagery and dialogue, she sheds light on contemporary life which leads the viewer of the work to draw their own conclusions. With a flock of doves floating around the high-born young woman to obscure her vision, the pose of the aristocrat tells us she is deep in thought.
This version of Love is Blind has a strong black and gold diamond motif on the background with the woman clad in an ivory gown. Love is Blind II has a black and gold quatrefoil motif on the background with the woman wearing a terracotta-colored gown; and Love is Blind III has a strong gold diamond motif on a mirrored background with the woman clad in an ivory gown. Each illustrates how Jackie brings an avant-garde freshness to these pieces of contemporary art using modern design elements.
