Louise Benton, 'Ego Te Absolvo' 2021

£195.00Price

Louise Benton’s work explores representations of the female figure, particularly within modern life. She seeks to explore collective experiences unique to femininity, often exploring subjects which carry a stigma of shame. Her body of work serves to locate female private space, and how this is sexualised under society’s gaze.

 

Louise draws on themes of catholicism and antiquity as a means to convey more modern experiences. Greek urns become canvases for stories of tinder dates or sex toys, while the confessional booth is rendered in porn star pink rather than demure mahogany. Benton works initially into gouache and ink, moving these ideas further into ceramic or digital mediums, using her iPad to explore different processes. This beautiful work emplifies this playfulness in Louise's practice.
