SPOTLIGHT: The Fanciful,  Monstrous Feminine by Jessica Ledwich

Intense. ‘The Fanciful, Monstrous Feminine’ by Jessica Ledwich is a feminist art series that depicts strange, surreal beauty rituals illustrating the concept of the “monstrous feminine.”

This term describes the notion that femininity itself is monstrous, because throughout history, the bodies of women have been represented as a threatening form of sexuality. 

Ledwich’s series shows these dangers in scenarios where the pointed heel of a shoe has been replaced with a blood-covered blade, or a scene where individual fingers with a well-manicured set of red nails have been removed digitally and replaced with tools from a manicure set. 

Each image is more bizarre than the next, but Ledwich effectively communicates some of the strange rituals that have become associated with femininity.
