Acrylic on Paper

In this painting I use images of the ‘harem girl’ as she might appear in the linear style used to illustrate stories like 1001 Nights, as well as the fleshy, orgiastic, fever-dream depictions imagined by Orientalist artists such as Ingres and Gerome. Though the latter is hardly more than colonialist fantasy, it serves here as a metaphor for spaces in which social mores may be temporarily suspended and fantasies played out. To do this, I chose not to depict the latter figures in a style that explicitly caters to the male gaze, as would be typical in the Orientalist tradition.
