Fascinating new fine-art photography project by Isabelle van Zeijl​ 'Historical Icons of Beauty' in which she explores the aesthetics of the past to bring new light on the role of the female throughout the ages. Artwork: 'Medusa' "All life we are affected. Transitioning from youth to adulthood, becoming a partner, a mother, finding a role in society, and all other obstacles that life throws us: we try to find grip. The society we live in enforces role models. But these are only masquerades. All those masks and skins alienate us. They are intangible. Unattainable. They universalise beauty.” Van Zeijl explores the enigmatic female face in a series of self-portraits. “I turn an inquisitive eye not only on how we shape our notions of beauty but also the charged relationships between painting and photography, truth and reality." @isabellevanzeijl. 'Historical Icons of Beauty' is a collaboration with award-winning Dutch fashion designer @irisvanherpen. #IsabelleVanZeijl #WomenInTheArts #CynthiaCorbettGallery #YoungMastersArtPrize #IrisVanHerpen @youngmastersartprize
