LISA FOGARTY

Self-taught artist with a childhood obsession with comic book girls. A woman painting women - using the female gaze to creating new archetypes. Exploring themes like mental health, beauty and trauma.


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

Exploring themes like mental health, trauma and the female gaze. Mixed media collage on vintage magazine pages. Read more about this art style and collections here.


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 Some of them - like Idun - were considered feminist at the time but are hopelessly outdated by now. I mostly use short stories and they always have the same theme - how to fall in love and get married. It’s an interesting contrast to a more modern illustration style and woman. 


It’s a summary of how I perceive myself as a woman in many ways - it’s the images and discourses I’ve been feed throughout my life; they are children’s book illustrations, pinups, IG models, 80s underwear catalogs and comic book girls.

EDITIONS

"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.”

- Susan Stamberg, "Women painting women"
