Ink & collage on paper.
Created for the Transformer The Exercises for Emerging Artists E3: Painters exhibition.
Lisa Marie states, “My work challenges passive representations of women in Western culture by placing them in untraditional roles. Women boxers are only accepted in contemporary culture by a very exclusive group of sports enthusiasts. By combining violent strength and feminine beauty my work deconstructs conventional notions of gender, identify and power. This work was inspired by the abundant amount of strong women I am surrounded by on a daily basis.”
