Entry Description:

'Fragments' is a series of abstract compositions created by combining pieces of photographs of female faces and bodies taken from women's magazines. The artworks present broken images
of women in our society - both the image of flawless beauty in magazines and the distorted self-image of women due to its artificial ideal of beauty.
