Sculpture #1, Stroke Series by Emma Lehto

#1, Stroke Series

Cut paper, paper sculpture | Size: 8.5 x 10.75 | 2017

Similar to the Rejected Series, I have been fascinated with challenging the viewer with investing their own perspective into the my deconstructed magazine pieces.

I am reducing the images of hard core pornography into flashes of colour built up with multiple layers of pages. 

I am revealing new spaces, shapes and creating new meanings. I'm inviting the viewer to join in a mocking of pornographic tropes and their play on our sex-saturated gaze- where depicted holes are replaced with actual ones.
