Strongwomen is a series of graphic works and drawings, started in 2019, showing women as athletes lifting weights and assuming various poses. Presenting as heroic daily challenges such as child care, career, or shopping, these works point to women’s crucial position in society. The images of contemporary female athletes comment also on the classic art-historical tradition of representing athletic male bodies.
