The Female Gaze
The Female Gaze is a feminist collage made with vintage and contemporary magazines, and sets out to represent the (still few) women directors from film history to the present day. Many of these women made their way to directing through the apprenticeship of acting, taking power from their star status and turning from the gaze to assert their own. Inspired by the cinema and feminist film theory the large-format original was first exhibited with the ‘Tales from the Cutting Room Floor’ collection in 2015 how the marginalisation of women inside the film industry impacts on the conventions of traditional Hollywood filmmaking. This is a limited edition of 1/50 printed in giclee, taken from an original photomontage and signed by the artist. This cut and paste mixed media is signed by Julia Andrews-Clifford and is part of the collection ‘Tales from the Cutting Room Floor‘ (2015).
