My work explores the female form through the reoccurring body postures seen in contemporary visual culture focusing on its portrayal in advertising, the media and celebrity culture. The body postures from Greek Antiquity can still be seen in our society every day on billboards, newspapers and social media. Through my paintings I explore these themes by looking at the outlines, margins and frames projected onto the female form as well as how these relate to women’s rights issues that affect Scottish women and girls in the face of Brexit and #metoo campaign.
