Women in a red setting
“L'avenir de l'homme est la femme.”
‘Le Fou d’Elsa’, Louis Aragon
Studio based portrayals of mythic women referenced as classical subjects in art are staged against a rich single colour backdrop, each depiction having one reference in the title but the implication is of more. Iconographic elements of different periods and genres, from different masters and movements coalesce to create a timeless image of the contemporary model. Staged photography produces an illusory world wherein every woman plays a characteristic role, yet remains herself.
