L’appel de L’inconnu

How much do we actually know about our own body?

Despite the countless representations of the body that we have seen throughout history in paintings, drawings, newspapers, medicine and various social media, it can still surprise us.

L’appel de l’inconnu explores the unfamiliarity in the known female form and the compulsive drive we all have for beauty. This body of work questions contradictions and tensions; the known and unknown, soft and hard, inanimate and animate. The duality of these images elicits the uncanny as well as the visual perception of Gestalt.

Although the images are aesthetically pleasing, the core message that we must re-evaluate how we see, know and understand the female form remains.

 A Place Like Home

‘A Place Like Home’ is a selection of photographs captured to resemble memories of childhood like phantoms. What we remember as children and the way it made us feel. A sense of stability and peace for the soul and the mind. The sunrise is symbolic to a new day, a new beginning, a second chance. This location is not familiar to these memories, but it can relate to others deep in heart. It is the sea, the air and the smells that show the importance. Captivating way to show how nature connects to a fragment of memory. The drawings are to balance the immortality and delicacy of these landscapes. A juxtaposition of two different creations from digital art.

The Blonde Moment

Recontextualising ideas of feminism has been a vital part of the 4th wave of the movement, including reappropriating derogatory words and behaviours used against women. The ‘bimbo’ is a common trope in pop culture and the media and is re-emerging as a method of female empowerment. The Blonde Moment seeks to parody the negative connotations surrounding this concept and reinforce that women are not one-dimensional beings and can be multifaceted by holding intelligence and depth in a variety of interests, and not just superficial ones. ‘Bimbofication’ initially became a meme in popular internet culture to show women as either being intellectuals or sexual beings. However, this meme has become satirised by feminists and subsequently transformed into a genuine agenda to empower women and cause progression in modern intersectional feminism.
