Flesh and Blood
Flesh and Blood is a series of rebellious and playful self-portraits which addresses the complexities of female experience, by re-appropriating the genre of the ‘nude’ and using it to portray a complex female identity.
The nude portraits subvert expectations about the genre by suggesting that the figure has total control of her representation: she either playfully mocks any desire to see her as a sexual object or else creates a sense of uncanny menace.
Fiona Trevitt is a photographer who explores themes of identity, psychology and intimacy. Her art work has often included self-portraiture and video performances, as well as the use of self-made props and sets.
