Gabriella Sorgente’s body of work is a response to her experiences of marginalisation through appearance. Gabriella's body of work is inspired by the historical and contemporary contexts of appearance; she has done this to understand the way that beauty standards have changed in response to societal and cultural expectations. She uses it to raise awareness of difference as well as challenging societal norms, resulting in the marginalisation of women. Her work responds to women's appearance through time and how this has changed. Gabriella feels that she is marginalised in society due to her polycystic ovaries. This results in body hair which even in contemporary society is seen as “ugly”.
