Despite decades of feminist critique, images of women circulated through mass media, including online, advertising and popular screen cultures, continue to objectify and commodify the female body and women’s experience.


Industries such as fashion, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals pressure women to conform to narrow stereotypes of ideal femininity, which underline the association of women with (acceptable types of) sexuality on the one hand, and domestic passivity on the other.


My images are responses which aim to both lampoon such notions while also providing avenues for pleasure and collusion in the viewer.
