Uncovered Covers collagraph monoprint with tights, nets, hair by Sally Butcher Fine Art

Uncovered Covers (Collagraphic Monoprints with Pencil (2016-20)

These Collagraphic Monoprints are made from gendered coverings, including ‘real’ surfaces like human hair, mixed with ‘artificial’ ones, such as lace, ribbon, hair nets and tights. The hand drawn elements work alongside the printed elements and are reminiscent of the female reproductive system (fallopian tubes, milk ducts and vagina-like parts). These pieces play with notions of the ‘monstrous feminine’, intending to provoke desire and disgust at the ‘unbounded’ female body. Borders are playfully transgressed as outer feminine coverings merge with internal female body parts, permeating between seductive textures, protective coverings and visceral embodiment.
