Louise Upshall painting

media release and invitation
Louise Upshall explores the representation of women in fashion magazines and the controlled atmosphere under which these images are produced. Her paintings of magazine pages are slashed and cut, producing an acute use of negative space while negating the glamour and fantasy on offer. The works build on the concept of fashion as a creative process where the projected values from glossy pages are mined and altered to present a new body of work.
