Sarah Dallow’s work is centred on the portrayal of the female body, highlighting the areas that women have been encouraged to dislike about themselves. She frames the body from a different perspective; one that has not been clouded by Photoshopped pictures or influence from the mainstream media. Dallow’s imagery challenges the narrative around stereotypes, beauty and body standards. She experiments with fine liner to produce black and white stip- pled illustrations that offer an anonymous representation of women’s bodies from a range of backgrounds, shapes and sizes. The Floral Bodies series combines flesh with unfurling petals, framing limbs with a delicate and light touch. The collection includes a range of bodies from different sizes, ethnicities, and disabilities to create an inclusive space for all women.
