Limited Edition Prints
Printed locally on high quality photographic paper
'Sex Appeal' is a series of five moving image portraits of different female characters that externalizes the subconscious relationship between being the surveyor and being surveyed. Women are in constant assessment of themselves, from their actions to their appearances, as this will determine how they are treated in the world. In this work, each character presents themselves in a distinctly different way, while some are demure, flirtatious and inviting, others are stand-offish, dominating and confrontational. However, this work is less about who exactly these characters are and more about the relationship between the viewer and each character.
