BANG 2012 (122x124CM) By Joe Hesketh

March 5, 2012

A Picture relating to the anger felt when the female body is objectified by men in terms of an article of exploitation and pleasure as opposed to being accepted equally as a human being. The classic pose so reminiscent of Henry Moore, is violently disturbed by the inclusion of a rifle placed between the legs of the woman. ’Bang’ is not the reaction to an event but a precursor to what might happen. The gun has not been fired but it is cocked in anticipation, a bitter response of a young woman to living in a male dominated, chauvinistic society.
