Taboo: Intimate Portraits of lesbian Couples
I use narrative, historical art references, fantastical elements of costumes and autobiography to depict taboo intimacies between women—acknowledging and emphasizing the female gaze. My works consist of large paintings, photographs and monotypes created over the past two years. I construct intimate moments in my photographs and create narrative portraits of lesbian relationships. My work opens up a dialogue about the increasingly open presence of lesbian couples in contemporary society and the lack of their presence in the history of Western art.
