                 Elouise Harper
Fuck you is what Eloise Harper embeds in her practice. She develops her concepts from repurposing classical paintings, where women have been represented, and objectified through the male gaze. She reinterprets the metaphors and symbols present in these works from a feminist perspective within a contemporary framework.
She investigates how the history of painting has favoured a patriarchal view of women, stereotyping them within traditional passive roles. She Implements colour, text, typography and material, seeking to embody and empower a new articulation of what it means to be female in the 21st century.
