Reconstituting the Reclining Female is an exhibition that critiques the historical practice of painting the female nude.
The overlapping of lines and re-construction of the female form suggest a type of rebuilding quality to the female body, informing a feminist analysis into the damages that occur from women being represented by others for thousands of years.
Whilst the artwork references a kind of traditional art movement, the flat bold colours within this exhibition speak of the now, therefor allowing us to discuss how the historical female reclining nudes function today and their role in creating the “ideal female” of the 21st century.
Suburban Therapy is running throughout late Oct – early Dec 2015 as part of the MoreArt Festival in conjunction with Moreland Council and Counihan Gallery.
