Maisie Cousins is a British artist born in 1992, living and working in London. Maisie explores topics with honesty and humour creating erotic and visceral images that not only challenges people but also asks them to get involved. Her work presents a very real approach to femininity; bodies sweat through the image, appearing gruesome, yet seductive and repelling. With liquids glimmering on the surface enclosing the female flesh, spilling over pink flowers and vibrant fruits, we become immersed in the images, imprisoned into the body itself. Through the explicit use of macro imagery, Maisie’s photographs are juicy, sticky and highly visceral, enhancing the fluidity of sex and gender, Maisie’s work actively responds to destructive images aiming to address the damaging misogynistic ideals of beauty.
Recent exhibitions include Late at Tate Britain (2015), Zero Zero at Annka Kultys Gallery (2016), What a Time to be Alive at Sunday gallery (2016), among many others.
