Sara Drescher's "Seven Deadly Sins" series was inspired by cigarette and liquor ads from the turn of the twentieth century.
This series is a“tongue-in-cheek” look at our shortcomings.
“Gluttony” acrylic ©Sara Drescher-private collectionTranslation: “Eating too much is not a virtue.”Just a friendly reminder from a jolly fellow.
“Envy” acrylic ©Sara Drescher-private collectionTranslation: “Envy is not a virtue” This red-haired beauty has the green eyes of jealousy. She appears to have dropped her rose for something else she has seen and wants. The yellow rose means jealousy in Victorian flower language.
“Greed” acrylic ©Sara Drescher-private collectionTranslation: “Greed is not a virtue” Although this woman is practically swimming in gold and jewels, she is wearing shackles and a ball and chain made of her riches.
“Vanity” acrylic ©Sara DrescherTranslation: “Pride is not a virtue.” Although this woman is very beautiful on the outside, her vanity and the ugliness on the inside is starting to show as well.
“Lust” acrylic ©Sara Drescher-private collectionTranslation: “Lust is not a virtue” In this man’s glasses are two versions of the same woman, how she appears and how he sees her in his mind.
“Sloth” acrylic ©Sara Drescher-private collectionTranslation: “Sleeping too much is not a virtue.” The sloth is such a slow animal that is grows algae and moss on its fur.
“Wrath” acrylic ©Sara Drescher-private collectionTranslation: “Wrath is not a virtue.” This driver’s rage has combusted him into flames
