Perfect is overrated, Perfect is boring.
We live in a society where women’s voices are becoming louder and more powerful, yet this has not translated into the mass media. Social media is bombarded with hyper-sexualised images of women depicting unrealistic standards of beauty rather than celebrating those that speak out for women’s issues such as period poverty, pay gaps and the different attitudes we have towards men and women. This work explores this false representation of women in art and society. Focusing on advertising in both high-end fashion and in gossip magazines, Tyler creates Hannah Hoch inspired pieces that juxtapose often overlooked political issues with hyper-sexualised female images.
