Tahnee Lonsdale // Underground Fever

Tahnee Lonsdale // Underground Fever


2015, acrylic on paper

Artist Statement:

Heavily inspired by Bacon, these three small works on paper take a female approach to the turmoil expressed in his paintings. The tension is palpable. Three woman set in three different environments, all with the pressures of life weighing down on them. Providing, nurturing, protecting. We are duty bound  to our homes, our kids and our men. But this doesn’t make it easy. Part-autobiographical, part-universal, what is it to be a woman in today's society.  The expectation to have it all and do it all is the surest route to a breakdown.And these paintings show women on the cusp.
