Georgia Lycett


"Exploring the decreasing control that women have over their bodies in a modern, hyper-sexualised society, through the use of 'raw and unapologetic' self-portraiture."
-

Georgia Lycett looks at the many connotations that surround the female body. Her work looks at the lack of control that women have with their bodies, especially in a society where women’s bodies appear everywhere in order to be surveyed and advertise goods.
 
Georgia’s work tries to recreate the nude by making it naked, by making her work ‘raw and unapologetic.’ She does this through the use of self-portraiture as this destroys the muse; she becomes her own muse in a means to take ownership of her naked form.
