TJ Boulting is delighted to present the first solo show of photographic artist Maisie Cousins. Her approach to making images is hedonistic and performative as she explores topics such as sensuality, indulgence and body image. Maisie’s work comes from a desire to see femininity and sexuality in a positive and open way.
Inspired by the fluidity of sex and gender, her work actively responds to destructive images aiming to address the damaging misogynistic ideals of beauty. Exploring these topics with honesty and humour she hopes to create erotic and visceral work that not only challenges people but also asks them to get involved. Her work brings to mind the sensuality of Pipilotti Rist with the graphic depiction of bodily flesh of Jenny Saville.
Maisie Cousins's first solo show, co-curated by Mia Pfeifer, is a result of several year’s work coming to a climax in an exploration of nature and sexuality, providing the audience with a break from reality and an overall sensory experience, with an installation created in collaboration with celebrity perfumer Azzi Glasser.
The Private View on 16th May will be part of Fitzrovia galleries opening late night in collaboration with Photo London fair where Maisie will be showing in TJ Boulting’s booth in the Discovery section along with Juno Calypso.
