Karen Silvestro's Taken for a Ride

So I promised you a new Karen Silvestro painting a day.  Here you go.

Taken for a Ride depicts a woman who is disregarding all the warning signs and red flags in the pursuit of that ever-present preoccupation many females have–marriage.  What is it about this urge to settle down and commit our lives to another person that we may ignore all the indicators that it may not be the right person we are committing to?  As a Southern young woman, I can relate to the perplexity of this situation.  I know my parents, family, friends all thought I’d be married by now.  But it’s never been right.  I don’t want to be taken for ride.  This woman has her blinders on so tightly, she does not see that the man she is allowing to take her down this path to ‘wedded bliss’ is clearly not even a real man…

Come see Taken for a Ride and the rest of the PAPERDOLL: The Search for the Perfect Man show at Robert Lange Studios.  Opening Reception this Friday at 2 Queen Street, from 5:30 – 8:30 pm, with beverages from Social Wine Bar on East Bay Street.  On view now through the end of August.  Visit Karen Silvestro online for a preview of the show.  Brought you by Art Pimp.
