'“Lady Hacker Soiree”. 36''by 68''. 2014, oil on gessoed paper.
This group of narrative paintings is a social critique on some of the things I find absurd, amusing, and repulsive in western culture. By using female figures to portray these scenes i'm striving to make a painting through the lens of a woman targeting woman. As women we are saturated in alluring media that ask us to remold, consume and replace ourselves on a day to day basis. These paintings are aiming to act as a form of attractive visual consumption. Like a venus fly trap, the viewer is attracted to the formality of the painting and in a sense forced to reconcile with the more humbling message the figures are portraying.
Of course this is a work in progress and these three painting represent my initial ideas on the subject. More work to come!
