A modern contemplation of femininity
Isabella Mack, is a promising Australian artist based in Los Angeles. She creates large scale charcoal figurative drawings that portray the journey of navigating womanhood in the constantly developing landscape of modern feminism. Her work is an exploration of the parameters of authenticity in a heavily commercialised world and presents femininity as a rebellion against societal expectations and outdated notions of gender norms.
Her depictions of apparently banal human actions seek to contemplate and reveal the deeper psychological ambiguities of the human experience. She invites and challenges the viewer to question their role within the scene depicted, quietly exploring the nature of objectification, making the viewer implicit within the work. Mack’s art is a perpetual hunt for honesty, integrity and emotional realism in contemporary art.
