The image of the young, porcelain, female corpse, is one that continues to flood popular culture. Reincarnated from the popularity of true crime to the fictional enigma of a snow white corpse mysteriously found in demise, it seems that the lure of the 'Dead Girl' is an everlasting form of obsession. 

This, often unrealistic representation, is a trope that has endured for centuries, from Ophelia's floral drowning to Laura Palmer's, 'wrapped in plastic' beatific portrait.


Crystallised in wax figures,  comely simulations of the female cadaver were once used as a tool for medical exploration. This attraction to the dead venus seem to endlessly reproduce despite the horrific reality that women of all ethnicities, are, and continue to, fall victim to brutalised violence on a daily basis.

In this new series, the artist strives to wrestle with her own desire to consume such imagery, its fetishization and to explore the voice of the silent victims that often inhabit her pictorial worlds.
