Project Title: Gender Roles

My project explores the negative effects of forced gender roles in society, how we are expected to dress, speak and behave in a certain way.
I love drawing the fabrics and textures of clothes so decided to focus on stereotypically gendered outfits. I combined this with the artist Jose Romussi to created layered embroidery artworks to represent he disconnect between how people want to express themselves, and what people choose to wear.
I also created a series of life drawings to explore physical differences between people of different genders and body types to show how we are immediately perceived judged by others.
