Inez van Lamsweerde

The feasibility, perfection and, above all, the construction of bodies, identity and gender are important sources of inspiration for Inez van Lamsweerde (1963 the Netherlands).

She uses, among other things, the idealised feminine images of the mass media and manipulates them using the "paintbox" computer.

In latest her represented work 'The Forest' she has meticuously cross-gendered the image of her models.
