These sketches derive from an in-depth analysis of the fashion imagery, editorial content, and advertisements featured in Condé Nast's portfolio, particularly in archived issues of Vogue and Vanity Fair, over a period of 20 years.
I produce artistic depictions that examine the intricate, often conflicting, psychological relationships we have with popular culture's portrayals of gender identity. I'm particularly focused on the impact of these societal symbols on the psyche of young women. My work scrutinizes the storytelling power of fashion photography to influence behaviors, using models as both archetypes and representations of unattainable ideals. By reimagining their elevated status, my art challenges prevailing norms. While fashion photography often employs elemental geometry to discourage critical thought, my approach aims to induce tension and cognitive dissonance, confronting both political and gender-related issues.
