Frank Magazine (Print/Online) The Camouflaged Beauty of Fashion’

Melanie Sykes, FRANK, May 23, 2019


will bring together Isabelle Van Zeijl’s varied bodied of enigmatic photographic self-portraits, which challenge the oppressive idealisation of beauty. The works take female architypes of the past and sabotage them in the context of today, by referencing and merging imagery from a historical context, particularly works of the Old Masters, with modern-day consumer content. The result, van Zeijl’s unique female characters, confront the significance of aesthetics throughout history and society. The exhibition will be presented by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery from the 24 – 30 June 2-19 at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Pall Mall. "
