What Would You Give Me For A Basket Of Kisses?

This piece of work was created for the Kiss Of A Lifetime show, which was a print exhibition themed around the kiss for Valentines Day.
The title is from the William March book and 1956 film “The Bad Seed”. The focus of the film is Rhoda a murdering sociopath child. She uses the phrase ‘what would you give me for a basket of kisses?’ to ingratiate herself and get what she wants from adults. Her syrupy facade hiding the fact she is a murderer and "a cold, self-sufficient child who plays by her own rules"
