Ellis King - Desperate Housewife


Acrylic on Canvas 


110 x 110 cm

A self-portrait which interrogates the challenges and frustrations placed upon women to be able to do it all – to have the career you desire, remain sexually desirable, while being the primary caregiver and supporting the family. The piece looks to uncover the reality of this pressure with rigid shapes and graphic expressions, highlighting these stereotypes with heightened objects (pearls and bags).
