Statement

The implied narrative in Siusan's paintings signifies the right of females to present themselves without fearing criticism and considers how society ought to stop judging individuals on how they look. In a society obsessed with body image and youthfulness, her work reflects the joyful euphoria some women experience by rejecting the unrealistic and somewhat unattainable expectations placed on them and seeks to reclaim and celebrate more realistic representations of women.



Biography

Siusan is a recent graduate of the Glasgow School of Art, where she obtained a BA (Hons) Fine Art, specialising in Painting and Print-making. She was awarded the AON Community Award 2019 . Her work engages with body image and draws on greek mythology and historical paintings and sculptures of the female form. She uses bold exaggerated forms to re-present those figures in order to reclaim and celebrate more realistic representations of women.
