My work is a critique of the Western world’s unobtainable vision of
beauty, that harnesses fear and insecurity to sell products to women.
The female body becomes a commodity: one that is endlessly
manipulated, upgraded, restyled, reconstructed to meet prevailing
fashions and cultural values. The end product is a series of instantly
recognised looks, poses and gestures that speak a gendered body
