The work in this solo exhibition explores themes of female empowerment, fragility and resilience. Inspiration has been drawn from the women in my life as well as Iconic females who have shifted our culture in meaningful ways over the years. Bold colour combinations are used to define the many layers to an individual’s personality making each piece completely unique. Society has tried to fix women into certain stereotypes, of which I aim to challenge in my artwork. There will be some new additions to my ‘I am Woman’ series, which explores the beauty and strength of the female body. These pieces portray joy, passion, but also this raw sense of vulnerability which I hope evokes the viewer to self reflect.
Iconic females have been the source of my most recent works. Portraits of some of the most influential artists such as Frida Kahlo and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama are featured in distinctive palettes, inspired by each Icons energy. As a young female in the art world, I wanted to pay tribute to the great female artists who have left a lasting mark on our cultural landscape.
