Boudoir explores themes of sexuality, desire, the erotic, love and repression especially within Victorian society.
Boudoir was originally created for an exhibition at Eastgate House in Rochester and placed in a deep-red flocked wallpapered room. This was an ideal space for this piece - rich, sensual and vibrant. The work instilled a sense of desire and an atmosphere of eroticism within the space.
My work explores eroticism at a point in history when sexuality in society was generally repressed. Women were often seen and depicted as just objects of desire.
Unusual and unique spaces are a source of inspiration for my work and act as a ‘brief’ from which I work to transform the original space.
