Flesh and Blood

Number 1 in series

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.
