‘Feminine power, seduction, and enchantment, Satanic feminism and fairy tales, myth and popular culture, monstrous women and movies. These are the forces that configure my world.
From The Wicked Witch of the West to the Orion Slave Girls and from Disney Villainesses to Russ Meyer’s buxom beauties; my current vile and verdant women have sucked the blood from hosts far and wide.
When weaving together culturally recognisable material into playful new narratives, I centralise the feminine force. My Provocative agents blend subtle satire with seduction, revelling in a rich yet troublesome history.’
Rebecca Parkin is currently exhibiting at the First Site Gallery, Colchester, in the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2021 show.
