Lot 438 - Olivia Strange - Let That Sizzle In Your Soul
Acrylic Paint on Board
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Signed on verso
Olivia Strange has a multi-disciplinary practice spanning drawing, painting, installation, sculpture and sound/moving image. She makes multimedia installations often using found objects and materials, poetry, sound & video projection. The works are characterized by a layered narrative which explores the queerness of objects through themes of female desire, notions of the ‘exotic’ and power-play whilst probing the uneasy intersection between fantasy and reality via a feminist gaze.

About the postcard artwork
The three postcards I have presented for International Women’s Day each aim to surface queer experience and offer an alternative empowering image of female subjectivity in an eroticized state. Oppressive bodily narratives are criticised via a whimsical and subversive language to refute binary ideals of ‘femininity' and womxnhood.
