"PAINTED LADIES" 2016-18

Collage, acrylic paint on paper

This series emulates old fashioned photo editing techniques, where photographers would alter the appearance of movie stars on film before developing images by essentially 'painting' over any blemishes. This series uses fashionable poses from old Hollywood publicity stills to expand the dangerous nature of the women. Rather than being a "femme fatale" and an antagonist through sensuality, they are more of a danger to themselves, taking risks in psychosis, smoking and drugs.

SEND IN THE CLOWNS, 2019

Digital Photography

This series of self portraits explores the sensuality and vulnerability of excessive makeup. These portraits are intended to make a statement on the sexualisation of makeup and makeup as a tool for the concealment of an identity, rather than an enhancement.

MUGSHOTS, 2020

Linoprints

I created this series of linoprints during the COVID-19 Victorian lockdown of 2020. Whilst also being a comment on the upkeep of solitary femininity, the placement of the cup on the faces mimics the face masks that became mandatory at this time.
