My project ‘Fuchsia’ focuses on the strength of female form through the use of saturated colours and empowerment by combining fashion photography and artistic concepts. My artwork fuses art and fashion through my acute eye for colour. Often referencing the male gaze and its impact on the photographic industry, my work explores beauty, race and female power through the relationship between fashion photography and conceptual art. I am inspired by modern fashion trends and fascinated with highly saturated colours that I can use to create bold contrasting subjects. My practice is informed by concerns of voyeurism and the underrepresented. I use my artistic visions to take control of femininity and womanhood as resistance to our patriarchal society. It aims to convey a clear visual style of powerfully intimate compositions and intense vibrancy. Realism and sculptural posing come into play in my portraits to demonstrate the strength of female form. I believe women of all diversities should be celebrated and depicted artistically in a collaborative environment. While my methodologies and materials vary in different projects, my response to research as an artist is consistent in being critical towards male ideologies.
