BonBon

Starring Sophia Loren - Italian bombshell of Golden Age Hollywood, ‘Bonbon’ is a celebration of female power and capability.

A diamond dust encrusted dress is set against a necklace of colourful bugs, finished with a Rhino Beetle centrepiece. Proportionally the strongest animal on the planet, the deceptive little Rhino Beetle can lift up to 850 times its own weight - a beautiful allegory for the strength of womanhood, which Rivans carries into Loren’s exotic headdress, adorned with winking bunnies who defy the conventions of 1950s housewifery, and fast cars to remind the viewer that girls enjoy ‘boys’ toys too.

Rivans even inserts a little of herself into the print, signaling her own Italian heritage in the figure of Loren and her British upbringing in the traditional teapot. A gorgeous melding of imagery and identity, gender and genealogy, Bonbon captures the spirit of feisty femininity with treasure-trove appeal.

    About the artist
    +

    Taking a unique approach to collaging, Maria Rivans is known for her layered imagery of vintage Hollywood. From starlets to Sci-Fi, B-movies to TV trash, Rivans’ passion for bygone cinema is palpable, infusing every piece with a life of its own.  

    Merging Pop Art with Surrealism, her work overflows with elements – a rich fusion of the organic and artificial, the urban and the natural, the human and the animal. Finely tuned to colour and compositional harmony, Rivans uses her distinctive approach to vintage adding a touch of humour, optimism, and inspiration. 

    In 2017 and 2018, her work featured in The Times newspaper and, in 2018, her Film Still ‘Understanding Nothing’ was selected for the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition.
