Utilising both printmaking and painting, I create hybrid versions
of my preparatory collages in order to critique the warped ‘ideal’
of the female form within mainstream media. By doing this, I am using my art to counteract society’s ingrained opinions on female beauty that I have been exposed to since early childhood. The high contrast black-and-white chequers alongside vivid primary colours serve as a coded autobiographical reference, while also drawing on art traditions and female histories. As such, the work looks towards the future for representations of the female form, while acknowledging past and present conventions.
