Exhibition : 23 highly original paintings and drawings inspired by people's connections with their internal and external environments, often involving ﬁgures or nudes positioned against organic forms and patterns of nature.
Also on display is my Masters Degree work, in the form of 3 projects that use the nude figure as the subject:-
The Rude, the Nude and the Crude • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
This body of work looks at the attitudes surrounding nude images regarding what is tasteful, moral or legal.
Portions - In these 3 paintings I’ve focused on obsessions over the female body's appearance and the ideals about how a woman should look, that manifest into mental illnesses such as internal feelings of aggression, anger or depression directed towards the body.
Abandoned in the super-market - Metaphors used to describe a woman’s sexuality, often in terms of food, raise many questions. Words used to describe eating or devouring are frequently used to describe female sexuality, and I have used some of these in these paintings.
