I portray an image of modern and monstrous women, who are driven by a seductive vision of glamour, money, fame, and success. The women in my artworks are powerful, strong and beautiful, but also terrifying, depicted in a grotesque way, full of exaggeration, hyperbolism, and excessiveness. I combine contradicting elements of beauty and ugliness, pain and laugh, harmony and chaos, life and vanishing, creating a grotesque of a contemporary, sugar-coated, mass media, fashion-driven representation of society. As an artist I am deeply intrigued in consumerism and 21 century beauty concept in a tragicomic way. Consumerism and consumption leads to uncontrolled addictions. Questioning perfectionism and our tendency to being ideal.
I am focused on a body and its relation with physical objects of desire. Manicured, but deformed hands, become a symbol of an ageing part of the human body, which is less susceptible to rejuvenation through surgery or a beauty treatment.
There is a hint of criticism of capitalistic society, but aren't we all on the same journey?
Chuck Palahniuk's novel "Invisible Monsters", fashion magazines editorials, fashion campaigns, make-up tutorials, you-tube beauty series, celebrities, ancient mythology as well as other stories depicting women as dominant, powerful and monstrous, all contributed to my works.
