Jess Cochrane: FearLess

WHEN : 6th May - 24th July
WHERE : Brisbane Powerhouse

Emerging artist Jessica Cochrane explores the effect of consumerism on feminism in this special exhibition.

Cochrane’s work combines portrait photography and expressionism painting in order to create works that are colourful, expressive and tantalise the viewer – is the photographic portrait’s beauty obscured or amplified by the vibrant splash of paint? You decide.

The exhibition also investigates the male gaze and women’s view of themselves – Cochrane takes photos which exemplify the “male gaze” (the view of women as plaint, sexual objects) and then transforms them into striking artworks which can be viewed as challenging, celebratory or grotesque.
