The work here employs techniques of printmaking and drawing, at times interspersed with hand sewn and collage elements. These pieces have been particularly inspired by female imagery from glossy magazines as featured in present-day advertising campaigns and fashion industry model shots. They ironically depict ideological figures of female beauty captured in doll-like poses, which are then integrated with typically effeminate symbols such as flowers, lace and sensuous folds of material, toying with “feminine” connotations that are often suggested and manipulated in the original texts, to produce images which themselves are intentionally disturbingly beautiful.
