Female Flesh

Female Flesh

Within todays fast paced consumer society, we are bombarded my imagery that uses an idealised human form as a representation of what is considered to be beautiful. Not only this but with the evergrowing use of social media, and such images now being more accessable, girls from a younger age are being brainwashed to believe that they should look a certain way.My prints aim to draw attention to the areas of the body that the media so often encourages us to hide. I want to celebrate these fleshy areas that make us all human, and destroy the taboo against them, fighting against such beauty standards that are creating mass body dissatisfaction. When considering the composition of my Lino, I placed the print at the bottom of the paper. This is so that it aligns with the lower stomach of the viewer creating a new, sculptural line of view and to mimic a reflection.
