Rude Boo project

Rude Boo is a small project that began during my final year at the the Queensland College of Art and I have since worked on sporadically after graduation. This small selection of work showcases the drawings of my partner, Jim, in the position of my model under the female gaze. As a female artist, I feel that using a male model is of importance in discussing the power dynamics that can often form between artist and subject, at times historically evolving into that of opressor and submissive. 

The series involving my partner as a model expresses both this consideration, and at the same time acts as an homage for the mundane in relationships.
