/LISA FOGARTY

Born 1983. Based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Self-taught artist with a childhood obsession with comic book girls. A woman painting women - using the female gaze to creating new archetypes. 


Influences include Alphonse Mucha, Modesty Blaise comic books, Gustav Klimt, John Bauer and Elsa Beskow.

"Lisas work is post-feminist and very personal. It layers contemporary, personal images of proud female beauty on top of historical stereotypical female documents, juxtaposing them and also overpainting them. Gentle, beautiful vandalism."

/VINTAGE GIRLS

I made my very first Vintage Girl in April 2015. It was a commission that needed to be a certain size and my pages were perfect for it.

I explore themes like mental health, trauma and beauty.
Mixed media collage on vintage magazine pages.


There is a lot of text in my art and I get to weave in some secrets and stories in the background. Most of my magazines come from old (1890s-1960s) women’s magazines. Some of them - like Idun - were considered feminist at the time but are outdated by now. 

“When I look at your work I see the female protaganist as being stuck between being an object (as a woman and the history of that) and a person with the full range of experiences and emotions. I don't know if i am right but i think it is very clever”

/WHAT IS THE FEMALE GAZE?
In contemporary usage, the female gaze is used to refer to the perspective of the female viewer which is different from a male view of the subject. You might see a pinup style woman but she is painted from a woman’s perspective with the intention to empower the female viewer.

“Do women paint themselves and one another differently? ‘Women artists look beyond the ideal beauty — the archetype’ Andrea Karnes declares. In doing so, they create a portfolio of new archetypes.”
