This Girl Just Flipped Feminine Beauty On Its Head. These Grotesque Photos Say It All.
I once read this quote that has stuck in my mind: “What some women do to themselves for beauty would be considered torture if done by one person to another.” Australian artist Jessica Ledwich seems to agree with that quote, judging by this art series of hers she named “The Ferocious – Monstrous Feminine.” In the […]

I once read this quote that has stuck in my mind: “What some women do to themselves for beauty would be considered torture if done by one person to another.” Australian artist Jessica Ledwich seems to agree with that quote, judging by this art series of hers she named “The Ferocious – Monstrous Feminine.” In the series Jessica grotesquely re-imagines traditional feminine beauty routines. In one of the images, a woman has her fingers severed and replaced with the tools used for traditional manicures. See some of the images from the series here below:

Ledwich says she hopes her images will make viewers question the increasing normalization of beauty treatments that once seemed extreme.

I personally think what is really disturbing now is the way that the expectation of a women to engage in beauty treatments, procedures and cosmetic surgery, is so ingrained in our culture that we don’t even think twice about it. These procedures are almost so mainstream now that you book them to fit between your grocery shopping and your laundry. There are a whole generation of young women who not only think it is normal to do this but that its desirable and worse, expected.
