This exhibition will show an ongoing project where the artist use herself as a subject. She photographs herself and make oilpaintings on square canvases, that are instagram friendly. Through this she wants to elevate the selfie.
The paintings are a reflection and exploration of the culture we live in, a culture that dictates how an ideal woman should look and where we allow parts of the female body to become trends. The body part of her generation being the ass.
The series is a way for the artist to take back control of her own body and reflect upon her own past, and her ever evolving relationship with her own body and sexuality.
It is also a reflection on self-curating, in which social media plays a big part in our lives. Her intention with this series is to reveal the intimacy of self-reflection in self-photography.
Cara Lien (b.1990) is taking her BFA at Bergen Academy for the Arts and Crafts.
