Headless, 2017

Printed photography, masonite, black acrylic, & resin. 

Statement

Headless dives into the app Instagram and the language of hashtags, along with the double standards that come along with it. By exploring #hot, I realized a trend that men were praised, while women were more than likely slut-shamed for posting similar photographs. Comments focused on their bodies, while their male counterpart comments were vaguer. Therefore, this series takes these photos, using this hashtag, and removes everything but the body of the man. Using paint as a replacement for the objectifying commentary women experience daily.
