Take Me Down to the Paradise City

Take Me Down to the Paradise City

Nicole O'Loughlin

Take me down to the Paradise City depicts Axl Rose and Slash from the popular 90s rock band Guns N Roses in a Henri Rousseau styled Garden of Eden. By rehashing fine art with the popular culture of my childhood I seek to address the clash and similarities between religious ideology and celebrity worship. This work in particular also seeks to reverse the male gaze and takes a stab at the patriarchal foundations that exist within the Christian religious doctrine. My current body of work offers a post-modern take on needlework, readdressing the craft vs art debate and revaluing what has previously been seen as ‘domestic’ and ‘women’s’ work.
