It features portraits of well known female pop culture icons and characters who were seen as promiscuous or sex obsessed. “Sluts”, yet loved, respected and idolized.
It highlights the juxtaposition of societies perception of women, (particularly in the media), who enjoy sex or multiple partners as having a particular look; big haired, like a peacock awaiting a mate, and generally quite eccentric.
As one of the portrait subjects Dolly Parton says, "I based my looks on the town tramp - the whore in my own town. She had a lot of peroxide hair, bright red lips and wore short skirts. I just thought she was the prettiest thing I had ever seen."
Lisa’s exhibition is also focused on creating dialogue with visuals stating “I can hold entire conversation with someone using google image searches alone.
I can tell their age, humour, political views and sensitivities based on their responses to certain images of pop culture icons.” She continues “Our society now is so much more visually communicated with thanks to social media and dating apps. How a certain number of “Likes” can determine someone’s self worth and happiness has created a greater pressure on young girls to be more visually sexualized than ever before.
I want to communicate these ideas within each woman in each portrait without having to utter a word.”
