Women & Flamingos

Women and Flamingos, created in 2015, is a series of six charcoal on paper drawings ranging from 65cm to 2m.

 

The drawings depict a female protagonist; using the face of Great British Bake-Off contestant Ruby Tandoh taken from the TV and bodies made up from classical masterpieces and google searches.

 

Exploring perceptions of ownership, power and victimhood Each piece is ambiguous as the heroine is portrayed twice in isolation, twice with what appears to be a clone or friend and twice with a flock of flamingos. 

 

This series of drawings was the Catalyst that began the Kritiques project.
