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 Some of them - like Idun - were considered feminist at the time are outdated by now. 



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.”
