Artist: Nic Palmer
This painting is inspired by the aesthetic and rhetoric of 1950’s “how to be a housewife” advertisements and posters. In a reclamation of the narrative, done in classic Aussie fashion (making fun of serious things) I design works with human-animal hybrids, referencing specific animals that women are sometimes referred to (birds, cows, cougars!). Simultaneously, I acknowledge how far our society has in terms of expected roles and behaviour of women, and choose to also celebrate our journey to equality.
