Role Models II

2017, Linocuts, paper size 40 x 30 cm

The linocut series ‚ÄěRole Modells II” are based on photographs of actresses throughout the 20th century.
Substituting the stars by dolls as well as rendering the images in a different medium create a certain distance to the original image, thus intensifying and counteracting the way women present themselves, or are presented, in public.
