Violent Femmes

Violent Femmes is a series created to explore the imagery used in the controlled world of fashion and advertising. Starting with photographic elements Sara takes what can sometimes be passive images and transforms them by the use of strokes of vivid paint dragged across the canvas. The original photograph becomes obscured, no longer static and emotionless , to become a powerful, expression of colour and movement. Eradicating the banality of the previous promotional message and visual incarnation.
