Nicole Hofman in ‘Powder Power’ by Gerrit Schreurs for Vogue Netherlands

Abstract art comes to life in Powder Power, by Gerrit Schreurs, for the November 2012 issue of Vogue Netherlands.  Looking like a Jackson Pollock, Nicole Hofman is covered in explosive splatters of vibrant powder, creating a vision of modern expressionism.  Primal pigment patterns fall on the flesh like fantasy tribal markings.  It is said that no shade can match the ruby-red of a just-bitten lip or the sweet flush of a peony-pink cheek, this is the aesthetic celebration of natural beauty.
