Janne Kearney has created a timeless and powerful visual narrative in her contemporary pop pin-up series the ‘7 deadly sins’. These seven vibrant paintings are instantly recognizable as Kearney’ s trademark brilliantly bold colours and expressive emotive lines resonate with a mastery of the visual language and its semiotics.
Inspired by sex-positive feminism, each deadly sin is portrayed with unique artistic vision and generated by a sense of feminine empowerment through self-determined sexual expression. Each work strips away generational difference and passionately reveals the timelessness of the perceived vices of those within the constructs of our world.
The works pass no judgement on the ‘sin’ they reveal, but rather subtly allude to the notion of feminism itself within the clever interplay of intriguing figures represented within her bold works. Each work actively challenges a plethora of narrow social constructs based on dubious assumptions of sexual orientation, gender stereotypes, and feminist theory.
“Raw” Raw gives a sneak peak of my next series, it is in your face portraiture expressing the fundamental emotions which make up our lives, they have been merged into a video / audio experience for you.
