“I wear make up for myself.” Many women report that they feel more confident with make up on. Faces are sculpted to conceal imperfections and enhance features. Identities are constructed through the purchase and application of particular brands of cosmetics. Each image in ‘Untitled’ represents a selection from the contents of one woman’s make up bag. Still life conventions used in advertising are referenced, however there is an imperfect aspect to the work. The products are carefully arranged in a delicate balance that are unstable and cannot last long and are photographed before they topple.
