Digital Print: Grand Modelisque

I wanted to look at the use of garish pink in relation to women and girls. Have you noticed the proliferation of pink on magazine covers? There are two or three variations of pink commonly used as long as they look fake, unnatural and cheap. I have also noticed this filtering into products for female children and regularly see little girls decked out from head to foot in nasty pink including prams and bikes. I find this disturbing and insidious and wonder about its symbolism and why it has become so extreme. In the work below I have taken the text from some popular women's magazine covers to fill and distort the figure of a model. I have repeated the image multiple times and reworked it both in and out of the computer. This work was included in issue 6 of Timglaset magazine.
