L is for Lioness I

Elizabeth Waggett

I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar

The big cat series presents to the viewer a parity between felines and women. Both targeted for their bodies, both muted due to the desire of man. Each piece is drawn in a diagrammatic way with labelled body parts, underscoring how they are viewed and valued by society. Powerful words and statements surround the felines for the viewer to connect and empathise with from their own standpoint, societal perspective and that of the feline.

“Exposing these big cats in large scale with oil on linen, helps me fully explore the physicality of the creature and pay homage to the craft of those that came before. I analyse further by exposing key anatomical elements. The paintings become large scale book pages designed to create empathy between the viewer and subject.” – Elizabeth Waggett
