'Broad Appeal' by Neryl Walker
EXHIBITING IN THE SMALL WALL PROJECT
OUTRÉ GALLERY MELBOURNE
April 13th - April 22nd / 2018
Below is a excerpt from a current interview we did with Neryl. Click here to read the full interview.
"Broad Appeal looks to celebrate women and the power inherent in women owning their sexuality, rather than being objectified by it. All the artworks are original paintings on plywood. The term ‘broad’ originated in the 1930’s and was popularised in the 40’s and 50’s as slang for an independent, assertive/aggressive woman. Someone who sings loud, parties hard, has a strong will and a sarcastic sense of humour. These attributes could be seen as threatening or even slightly derogatory but I am using the word in a positive light. Why can’t women be all these things?"
