#andegreeshowtakeover by @fk.art The female form, perhaps unsurprisingly, is the subject of many of the works in this year's degree show at ECA. Painters Hayley Whittingham @hayley.whittingham and Rebecca Tarrant @rebt_artist are among those grappling with gendered bodies with notably different approaches. Whittingham, who works as a life model, delves into the concept of "professionalised nudity", creating portraits that boldly confront the viewer's gaze, while Tarrant attempts to harness the power of phallic symbols in assertive abstracts and an oversized self portrait. #andegrees19 #edinburghcollegeofart #eca #ecadegreeshow #edinburgh #contemporaryart #fineart #scotland
