PRUE Stent is a 20 year old photographic student at RMIT University, Melbourne. The themes of her photography center around femininity and the struggle of identity in women. The color pink is used to represent femininity either physically or emotionally throughout her work.
Her Pink series conjures up feelings of feminine beauty. Stent uses the element of colour to question society’s standard of beauty; breasts, buttocks, and lips are slathered with pink paint; perhaps to illustrate these commodities are a woman’s own. Her images are dynamic, filled with movement.
‘There is no real going back. Though I may come to the Shire, it will not seem the same; for I shall not be the same. I am wounded with knife, sting, and tooth, and a long burden. Where shall I find rest?’
