Based on personal experiences and observations of our collective expression of femininity Flirting with Monsters considers that which exists outside established social norms and cliched notions of the ideal female form. Presented in a handmade artist book Megan’s creative process sets portraits of women and still life images against a backdrop of powerful Icelandic landscapes, exploring and questioning our obsession with beauty and a contrived ideal form of femininity. This project seeks to instigate a new dialogue around female subjectivities. With a limited edition of 15 copies the artist book is made up of different paper stocks and printing techniques, all solely designed, printed, bound and finished by the artist
