The work here employs techniques of printmaking and drawing. 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 recontextualised, following surrealist traits under a postmodern guise, to create a new encounter with elements outside the typical frame of representation.
