MA Fine Art
Jade Ashleigh’s work emerges from a collection of archival materials and a love for 70s Italian horror and witchcraft.
Working from experiments with analogue film and photomontage, she creates work that empowers female beauty and feminist ideals, with emphasis of looking at victims of sexual abuse.
Combining the masculinity of brutalist architecture and the vulnerability of the female, this enhances threat and seduction of phallic buildings towards femininity.
The juxtaposition of contrasting images is used to highlight female victimisation of the male gaze within glamour and sexuality.
