Covering The Carpet


The female form is a hotly debated topic; it is constantly under scrutiny. Its naked state is the site of much political debate/contestation, particularly in reference to a woman's choice on the question: to remove or grow body hair?


In July 2014, a painting was removed from a London gallery for showing a woman’s pubic hair. Though the pose was seductive, the woman was made with oil. If a painting can be deemed as ‘too pornographic and disgusting’, what about a woman in real life captured by light?

These self-portraits are a performance in contorting, balancing and/or leaping the body into poses, in order to attempt to conceal this area.
