Artist Influences, Studio

Zoe Buckman

Beckman says, ‘The male gaze affects my work significantly as I find myself constantly countering it, what grows inside our bodies (placentas), to what goes on our bodies (lingerie), to what goes inside our bodies (gynecological instruments). Women are present everywhere in my studio, yet the body and face itself is distinctly absent. It’s my way of avoiding fetishizing or objectifying women. I don’t want to see women hanging on walls or on pedestals anymore.zoe-buckman
