Jessica Alys Ward
This series explores violent representations concentrating on of the female as the victim. This has allowed me to explore a sensitive subject matter with the challenge of keeping my own aesthetics within the work, without the intention being to offend. The idea is represented in the context of fashion and portraiture that embraces a darker aesthetic, deviating away from stereotypical norms within this area. I want to create a reaction within the viewer, and make the experience of viewing the imagery thought provoking. The use of unsettling composition and framing in the work allows me to mimic the uneasy content this in turn allows the difficult subject to be explored more in-depth rather than rejected for the subject matter itself.
