Keiko – Marilyn Smile (Blue, Diamond Dust)

"What's perhaps most striking about these photos, especially in light of all we now know about Marilyn's fraught and deeply sad life is how relaxed, self-possessed and (dare we say it?) how happy she looks. "In 1953, her biggest, brightest roles - in Bus Stop, The Seven Year Itch, and the American Film Institute's greatest American comedy of all time, Some Like It Hot - were still ahead of her, as were her unlucky marriages to Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller and her increasingly lonely, desperate last years. But it's worth noting that she really does not resemble a legend, an icon or an idol in these pictures. Instead, she looks like a beautiful young woman evidently, and perhaps momentarily, at peace with herself and her place in the world." From Life about Iconic Photoshoot with Alfred Eisenstaedt

After 25 years of working alongside acclaimed artists in the field of music, photography and design, Keiko Noah lends a pop feminist eye on the celebrated portraits of the most influential icons of the 20th century.

Keiko Noah, with legendary photographers such as Terry O’Neill and Alfred Eisenstaedt, reinterprets classic portraiture by diamond dusting images with contemporary modern style. These portraits, the most recognized in the world, have captivated and fascinated for more then 5 decades, bridging generation gaps and standing the test of time.

Following the steps of Warhol, Keiko silks screens portraits of powerful women such as Bridgette Bardot and Marilyn Monroe. Even in the age of the 15 seconds of Instagram fame, where any face could be catapulted into the stardom of the “most viewed” photograph, Keiko’s art shows that these icons continue to make their mark.

In her deconstruction series, Keiko picks apart and reassemble pieces to question the objects of beauty and how they have changed over the years. Is there beauty in the reassembling of the pieces or in the pieces themselves?
