‘She’ is the first artwork in a series which explores the beauty of the female figure from a different perspective. The lines, the crevasses, the shadows, the differences we all wear.
It all began when I was on a scroll (an instagram scroll) and realised that I'd just admired the bodies of two different females for entirely different reasons to what society may in a more mainstream way value in a photograph of a female. This began my thinking that often we are drawn to the actual outline of a figure and whether it falls into what we critique as 'desirable'. What I'd instead just done was admire how the shadows fell across figures of different form and figures held in different positions and how these contrasts intrigued the viewer and changed the whole perception of the image.
There began the project of drawing something which denied the viewer the traditional silhouette of a female figure and instead drew the viewer in, away from the negative space surrounding the figure. The eye is first drawn to the light dancing along her skin and then led around the figure with the angles of shadow and changes in gradient. The viewer is invited to explore the folds, textures and beauty of ’She’ herself, rather than getting lost in perceiving whether she is 'desirable' from figure alone.
