media release

This series is about reclaiming the perfect, idealised images of models in fashion magazines.Upshall creates an alternative fashion parade where the artificial manner of the subjects is contrasted with cut out sections and scratches akin to physical and emotional scars.These broken subjects with fragmented titles take on a new persona, closer to Upshall’s own experience and ideals.”The women become whole, not despite, but because of their brokenness and imperfections. They carry traces of experience written on the body.”

To arrange an appointment, to view, or for media images, please call 0417 235 916 or contact the gallery via the website.
