As a collage artist who works with vintage nude photos, I am interested in exploring and challenging traditional representations of women in art. By combining and layering images of the female form I aim to create a nuanced and multi-dimensional portrayal of femininity.
Through my art, I seek to reclaim the female body from the male gaze and to give voice to the diversity of women's experiences. I use a range of techniques, from subtle manipulations of the original images to bold juxtapositions of contrasting elements, to subvert and challenge the objectification of women in art.
I am particularly drawn to vintage nude photos for their evocative power and their ability to capture the beauty, vulnerability, and resilience of the female form. By repurposing these images, I seek to honor the women who were captured in them and to give them a new context and meaning in the present day.
