"My work deals with the female body, typically my own. I painted and depicted my own body after thinking extensively about both my relationship to my body, and society’s relationship to it. Whilst both sensual and suffocating, the representation of the [female] flesh wrapped in plastic is reminiscent of meat packaged and sold ready for consumption, just how the female body is often presented in art history and contemporary visual culture for male consumption." - Amy Hughs
