YELLOW FLOWER BLUR - Josephine Pereira
Oil on canvas. 21.5cm x 31.5cm
Josephine Pereira is a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia. Pereira's studio practice seeks to dismantle male imposed standards of representing and perceiving the world. Pereira posits a personal perspective into her paintings, with projections of her experience as a young female artist navigating the overwhelming influence of the male gaze that has continued to determine aesthetic tropes of female beauty within the art world. Pereira has exhibited in Sydney and London with industry recognition across multiple prize nominations, the most recent and notable with the Portia Geach Memorial Award 2020.
