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.”

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.
