Laura Schneider: Gestures of Resistance

In-process look at one of the Gestures of Resistance series. These works each pay homage to a female artist depicting the female form in a way that resists oppressive circumstances or ideology. This image is an homage to Jenny Saville’s Closed Contact photographs in which the fleshy, squashed nude figure confronts beauty ideals and the fear and/or disgust often associated with the female anatomy when not put forth for sexual objectification.
