Adhesive Beauty


Perpetually depicted as an object of desire, the female body is confined through idealised social conventions and networks to create representations of femininity. Reflective of the oversaturated image of the female body in consumerist society, these digital collages mirror some of the modalities of this framing.

My practice observes the social power structures that influence embodiment and self-representation. Extending from the familiar feminised image, the works return to a printed medium derivative of a discourse surrounding its tangibility and construction. In facing the split between beauty and intelligence they reflect my own ambivalence; enacting, and at the same time questioning, my position in society as a female.
