Page Laughlin's ridiculously awe-inspiring oil paintings (below) are "based on photographs of interiors from high-end shelter magazines (Architectural Digest, Nest, etc.)" And on her website, she goes on to explain: "These interiors present us with a fantasy of materialist beauty. These commercial images are compelling subjects for my painting because they reveal much about our consumptive desires. I am interested in what these fantasies reveal upon closer inspection and in what is veiled in seduction."
